Changing Lives

Heather Pinay is passionate about seeing people live their best lives. She's volunteered for a variety of causes from youth. She has worked with children, youth, and women to express themselves and embrace the fierceness of their individuality. 

In 2007 Heather spent three months in New Delhi India volunteering and living in an all girls orphanage with 63 girls ranging in age from 4-18. She taught english, arts education, and drama. Heather choreographed a performance for World Vision to arrange sponsorship for a new dining room, painted three murals, created a library and art supply room, and developed an anti-lice program. Helping women live full happy lives, embrace their talents, and rise above oppression remains integral to her core values. 

Living in Canada is a blessing - and Heather has worked to share this blessing with immigrants for two decades. From volunteering to help newcomers to get settled to teaching art classes at the Regina Open Door Society Heather believes that everyone should have the opportunity to find a better life in self fulfillment to career development. 

Women still face challenges in aspiring to equality in the the business community and Heather teaches free webinars at the Women Entrepreneurs of Saskatchewan and provides some free consulting to women getting started in business. 

Heather and Authentically actively sponsor The Matthew Project, a Regina volunteer organization that feed the hungry and homeless in Regina - loving on them and providing food. 

The landscape of business is changing, and Heather actively participates in this evolution through education. Through Authentically she sponsors HR2.0 YQR to shake up the human resources, and the Authentically Stage at Ladies Lifestyle Event to encourage female business owners.
