A Welcome Message from Heather Keam, Manager of Cities Deepening Community

Submitted by Heather Keam on December 11, 2017 - 8:06am

I am very excited to step into the role of Manager for Vibrant Communities’ Cities Deepening Community. I have been with the Tamarack Institute for nearly three years, working with the Learning Services team, helping change makers to connect and learn about community change through workshops, community of practices, tools and resources. I bring over 12 years of public health knowledge to this position. I have a passion for helping communities to realize their full potential, and to take leadership in assessing their own resources and needs. When I am not working, I am volunteering in my community - coaching soccer, acting as a scout leader, and sitting as a member on our local Optimist Club and on various boards.

Over the next month, I will be reaching out to many of you to learn more about the important work that you are doing in your neigbourhoods, and to see how Tamarack can help support your efforts. Please feel free to get in touch with me at

Looking forward to working with you all!

Have a safe and fun holiday season.


Heather Keam
Manager, Cities Deepening Community
