Heather has a bestselling book entitled, Lumination: Shining a Light on A Woman’s Journey to Financial Wellness and she has co-authored two research studies about women and wealth. Heather has been featured in many publications including The Wall Street Journal, Barron’s, and Bloomberg.

Heather considers raising her three children with her husband, Jeff to be her greatest and most rewarding accomplishment.  Her favourite activities include playing ice hockey, skiing and hiking. We cover the following in our conversation: What is financial wellness? What role do emotions play in how we manage our money? How do we move from the 'fear zone' to the 'confidence zone'? ESG & impact investing. Why invest in female-led start-ups? How does the financial services industry to change? And what will the world look like in 2075 when women own the majority of private wealth globally (& women make the majority investing decisions?)
