Live Your Dream Award (2021) 3rd Place Recipient
Heather is a married mother of 3 children and because of COVID, her husband has created major financial issues for their family and she has had to be the sole income earner for their family.
Up until a year and a half ago, she didn’t know what to do in life was working in the deli department of a grocery store. She started looking around for something else to do and started housekeeping at an elderly care facility and just loved being there and loved the feeling of helping the seniors plus gaining a second family away from her home.
Now, while her very supportive husband takes care of their children, Heather is attending school full time taking the health care assistant program (already doing her practicum) at Capilano College. She is making this change to better take care of her family and give her 3 children something that they can be proud of their mom!
Her plans are to finish school and start working in home support as a health care assistant on the Sunshine Coast where she lives so she can take good care of her family.
