Dr. Heisler grew up in the suburbs of Vancouver, British Columbia, hiking and getting rained on. After spending a year in Guyana, South America, she moved to Alberta for an undergraduate degree in biology and chemistry while taking mountaineering courses in the nearby Canadian Rockies. While attending medical school, her passion for global health and for providing care in low-resource settings was fostered as she directed the University's mobile free clinic and spent her summer in rural Tanzania. Dr. Heisler believes that equity in access to health care, addressing the social determinants of health and treating the whole person in a primary care setting are the means by which we can truly make people and populations healthy. Dr. Heisler chose St. Peter Family Medicine for its full scope inpatient family medicine faculty and its commitment to its patients as a patient-centered medical home. Aside from medicine, she enjoys traveling to learn new cultures and foods, vegetable gardening, backpacking and rock climbing with her husband.
