Heather always knew Interior Design was the right path to take, even as a little girl she would constantly re-arrange the furniture in her childhood home and sketch houses she wished she could design one day. There was no alternative career, it was design or bust, so she left her small northern town of BC and fully committed to the Bachelor of Interior Design program at Vancouver Island University. It was here, where she could hone both her artistic and technical skills while furthering her passion and drive for design. Gradating with distinction and a solid foundation for the industry in 2010.
In the years since, Heather has placed a high importance on continuing education and trade experience. Accompanying her degree, she holds a certificate in Computer Aided Drafting and Design with an architectural specialty from Kwantlen Polytechnic University. She continued to work in project management and coordination for specialty builders and designers while completing high end residential and commercial projects from start to finish that were tailored to each of her clients.
Working at SGDI is the culmination of 13 years of hard work and dedication and Heather is elated she can grow, expand and increase her impact on the design world within a team that shares her vision.
Aside from her obsession with design and art, she fully enjoys what the BC outdoors have to offer; hiking with her dog, skiing, mountain biking, kayaking or simply breathing in the fresh salt air of the coast.
