Hi Everyone! My name is Joshua Feld and I am a fourth-year biology major at Dalhousie University. In my spare time, I enjoy hockey, ultimate frisbee, camping, chess and getting involved in my community. I have always had a passion for heart-related initiatives like the Heart4Heart charity and have done extensive work fundraising with the Ride for Heart and advocating for increased CPR awareness and greater accessibility to AEDs in schools and public buildings in Toronto. I also volunteered in public health in Madagascar and saw the lack of funding and resources they had in their local hospitals. With limited medical supplies, people with treatable conditions such as congenital heart disease could not receive the life-saving surgeries needed to survive. For that reason, I felt compelled to take part in the Heart4Heart charity and I am grateful to be able to help create positive change in the world by giving children the opportunity to live fulfilling lives.

Hi, My name is Travis and I am currently a student at Dalhousie University majoring in Computer Science. I am passionate about photography and outdoor activities including hiking and ultimate frisbee. I had done some fundraising work in highschool and was looking to continue with it once entering university and the Heart 4 Heart Organization seemed like a perfect fit. I am excited to set and work towards new goals and challenges with the organization this year.

VP Internal Communication

Hello! My name is Phoebe Seely (she/her) and I am a second-year BSc student at Dalhousie University majoring in Sustainability and Physics & Atmospheric Sciences. In my free time, I love spending time outside on my front porch and I’ve recently started learning how to swing dance! I’m really excited to be involved with H4H to help create a positive impact for children and youth with CHD. My personal experience with a congenital heart defect has really amplified my desire to help other youth with heart conditions, and I feel really grateful to be part of this
organization which helps provide life-changing surgical care for children and youth in need.

and am excited to be a part of an organization that extends beyond borders and aids children in communities of developing countries.

VP Treasurer

Hi! My name is Ana and I am in my first year of Medical Sciences at Dalhousie University. I love baking, art, and doing puzzles. One of my favorite parts about Heart4Heart is coming together as a group and sharing all of our creative ideas to raise money for children with congenital heart disease. I am looking forward to seeing Heart4Heart grow and expand even more and I am very lucky to be a part of that. It has been such a joy planning for events and I couldn’t have asked for a better group to do it with.

Hey! My name is Emma and I am a first year Medical Sciences student at Dalhousie University. Some things I do outside of school include playing rugby as well as coaching youth rugby, but I also enjoy playing the guitar and spending time with my friends. I am super happy that I have the opportunity to be involved with such a great cause like Heart4Heart. I’ve always enjoyed being involved in some sort of volunteering, so I’m super glad I can continue that at Dal! It’s super exciting to see our chapter grow and put on more and more fundraisers, especially for such an amazing cause!

VP Second Year Representative

Hello! My name is Rachael and I am in my second year of Medical Sciences at Dalhousie University. Outside of school, I am a figure skater and figure skating coach and also enjoy playing tennis, baking and kayaking. Getting involved with Heart4Heart is special to me, as my oldest brother was diagnosed with congenital heart disease as a child, and my other brother and I also have heart conditions. This personal experience has given me a different perspective on how privileged we are to live in Canada and have access to life-saving surgery and care for heart disease. I am looking forward to helping raise awareness about congenital heart disease, as well as helping out children with CHD that need life-saving surgery!

VP Fourth Year Representative

Hello! My name is Chloe Coombs, and I am a fourth-year student majoring in Psychology and Marine biology at Dalhousie University. Outside of school I enjoy spending time with family, camping, painting, and kayaking. I’ve volunteered with other societies and have seen firsthand the lack of funding and medical supplies throughout communities. I then heard about Heart4Hearts student-led movement at Dalhousie and thought it was a great initiative to be involved in to continue shedding light on this matter. I look forward to continuing to raise awareness about congenital heart disease, and seeing the direct results our fundraisers have towards children’s life saving surgeries.

VP First Year Representative

Hi! My name is Adie and I am in first year medical sciences at Dalhousie University. I enjoy going to the gym, playing volleyball, and spending time with my family whenever I get the chance! I was involved in volunteering at a therapeutic riding stable, and in the cardiac investigations unit at my local hospital before coming to Dal. I knew I wanted to continue volunteering during school, and Heart 4 Heart was a great cause that aligned with my interests. I love hearing and contributing to the creative fundraising ideas our team has, and most
importantly seeing direct results of our actions when we raise enough money to pay for a child's surgery and improve their quality of life.

VP First Year Representative

Hi everyone! My name is Amanda Feld and I am a first year integrated science student. I love being outdoors especially hiking and camping, playing sports, and spending time with friends. I am so lucky to be a part of Heart 4 Heart, a charity that gives me the opportunity to help
communities in need and provides life-saving treatment for children around the world suffering from congenital heart disease. I was diagnosed with a heart condition when I was eight years old and have been taking part in raising awareness about the importance of CPR and AEDs for years since. It means a lot to be able to see how our charity directly supports children living with CHD live long and healthy lives on an individualistic basis
