Life & Career Milestones

My path in life has been direct

  • 1.

    After she didn't get a job working for a photographer, she went to work for a florist.

  • 2.

    While the head florist was away for a week, Heather started "tinkering," ended up making better arrangements than her boss.

  • 3.

    After she was laid off, she started her own floral business, did weddings and parties.

  • 4.

    Bought her own land so she could grow her own flowers and fruits, make jams; says, "I wanted to be Martha Stewart."

  • 5.

    Was inspired by Victoria magazine; invited the staff to a tea at her house, set up flowers and pies.

  • 6.

    One of the staff members told Heather she should be a prop stylist; Heather's reaction was, "That's a job?!"

  • 7.

    She started getting in touch with Canadian magazines and setting up their photoshoots.

  • 8.

    Says once she's not having fun anymore, she stops doing a job; never lets fear hold her back from trying new things.
