Born in Yellowknife, NWT, Heather drove a forklift at 16 and held summer jobs at BBE. She earned her Bachelor of Applied Business from Mount Royal University and her MBA from Queen's University.

It provided her the foundation to develop BBE supply chain initiatives to include the development of ubbe, a self managed shipping solution.
