ANNOUNCEMENT | Executive Director

Sep 27, 2022

After 8+ incredible years with Alice House, it is with mixed emotions we announce that our Executive Director, Heather Byrne is leaving Alice House. Heather stepped into the role in August 2014 and has been a force for good in the intimate partner violence and gender-based violence field ever since. 

Because of her, our organization is in a strong position. Her accomplishments are now her legacy, and we will continue to benefit from her work for years to come. Her list of achievements is lengthy, from strengthening our financial standpoint, to creating and implementing a five year strategic plan, to leading the team through organizational transformation in response to a global pandemic. In community, Heather has become synonymous with Alice House. The team and Board of Directors will miss her and wish her all the best.

While the Board conducts a search for a permanent Executive Director, we will be looking for an interim ED that can temporarily fill this position. This individual will support the organization and team with the transition.

If you have general questions or need more information, please don’t hesitate to contact Sara Colburne, Alice House Board Chair, at
