Heather Logan is a Wiccan priestess working in the Alexandrian tradition. She embarked on an eclectic Wiccan path in the mid-’90s while a Ph.D. student in theoretical particle physics at the University of California at Santa Cruz, aided by a vibrant Pagan community and a spectacular natural environment. Academic work brought her to Ottawa with her husband and cats in 2005 during a decade-long pause in her religious practice. In 2015 she founded Pagans of Carleton as a social hub for Pagan students and simultaneously sought out training with an Ottawa-based coven, into which she was initiated the following year and now holds a second degree. She is a professor and current Chair of the Department of Physics at Carleton University.
