He also serves as a CMCO chaplain at UBC and SFU.   Shaheer believes that success in life is an outcome that results from servitude to the community.

He has organized community events, established mentorship programs, and shared Islamic knowledge for over ten years.

His interest in combining health care and entrepreneurship has led him to pursue the Doctor of Pharmacy Degree from the University of British Columbia. He previously attained his Bachelor of Science Degree and Master of Business Administration from UBC and Thompson Rivers University, respectively. He has previously managed multi-million residential and commercial construction projects through a General Contracting company which he co-founded in 2016.
