She has contributed to the university as a clinical assistant professor, as executive director of Alumni Affairs at the Cumming School of Medicine, by establishing a student bursary, and through one of the university’s international projects: improving healthcare in rural Laos.

In 2006, Heard shifted her practice to work at Calgary Urban Project Society, (CUPS) and CUPS-One World Child Development Centre as a consulting paediatrician.
