Katherine Heyland

One Health Institute Program Manager

Katherine is a skilled program director with over a decade of experience managing wide-ranging interdisciplinary projects. She has degrees in both biology (neuroscience) and history (of science) and is equally at home in both the arts and sciences.

Katherine has found her professional home at the One Health Institute. She is privileged to be a member of a tight-knit team that brings together researchers, practitioners and educators from the arts and sciences; policymakers; and stakeholders from private industry in a framework that emphasizes the ongoing exploration of intrinsic connections between our natural world and built environments.

Katherine doesn’t mind video chats (that much), is always up for some strategizing and thinks that good project management and pie in the sky are often two sides of the same coin. Her love of checklists and order in her professional life is balanced by the chaos, noise and delightful messiness of her family life, and she is grateful to her career and her kids for keeping her nimble.

With a passion for the nature, Peter has served on the boards of Nature Guelph and Ontario Nature. His passions are travelling and photography and he has photographed on all seven continents. He is a graduate of Western University with an Honours B.Sc. and M.Sc. in physical geography.

One Health Institute Website Redesign Coordinator

Mussab Bin Imran, an international student from Pakistan, is pursuing his Bachelor of Computing degree in Computer Science (co-op) at the University.

One Health has been making remarkable strides in helping people through research and innovation. However, the impact of these efforts can be hindered if the information fails to reach the intended audience.

Mussab’s role at the One Health Institute is to ensure that all of One Health’s online materials are AODA compliant, making them accessible to everyone, particularly those with special needs. Leveraging his knowledge of AODA compliance and the skills he has honed over the years, Mussab strives to ensure that all community members can equally benefit from One Health’s valuable work!

“By ensuring accessibility, we can extend the reach of One Health’s mission and ensure inclusivity for all individuals.”
