Ann Heelan

Executive Director
Dublin: Ireland
I have been a chef, a teacher and a manager within an educational environment. For the past 14 years I have worked in a wonderful team in AHEAD actively working with the higher education sector and professions to change attitudes towards inclusion and more importantly to work with staffon how to be inclusive in their practice.

The Health Sciences are a great career choice and we work to ensure that students with disabilities can avail of these opportunities too.
I have recently, in my fifties, taken up horse riding and am reminded of the difficulties of learning a new skill, understanding what you are meant to do, following and getting all the instructions right, learning at the new language and all in a dangerous environment. Its not easy but practice makes perfect. It has given me an insight that I now bring to a my work where students are learning new technical skills.. Look forward to THE CAST conference.
