Hello!! I am thrilled to introduce myself to the HUB community!!
My name is Patricia Heard, but I really only answer to Pat, unless I’m being very formal ;) A resident of Oakville, having lived here for 23 years, my husband and I have raised our family and absolutely love life in Halton. I am a recent “empty nester”, with both of my kids off to University. Certainly a new phase in life.
For the past 15 years, I’ve been a fitness instructor at all four of the Oakville Goodlife Fitness locations - so I regularly hear “I know you from somewhere” when someone has been in one of my classes over the years... or maybe that person is a figure skating or hockey parent, and we’ve met in a rink - both equally likely!
Growing up in an entrepreneurial family, I have been always been exposed to businesses and everything that surrounds them - and after many career transitions, living and working in Japan, running a family (think tugboat!!) business with my father, and a stint as a stay at home mom, I’m now a business owner myself. I love the concept of entrepreneurs working together to lift each other up, supporting and mentoring one another, and growing through education and partnership.
I look forward to bringing H.U.B Inc to the Halton region, building connections that matter, and taking our businesses to the next level!
