Heidi was born and raised in Victoria BC.......her family discovered the Island when her dad was the Captain of the Vancouver Canucks.
Heidi herself has been a provincially ranked tennis player, equestrian rider and a dancer. She has a degree in Cultural Anthropology and studied at the Universite Stendhal, in Grenoble France. Her early years of work were mainly in sport and recreation.
Heidi moved back to the island after years of travel to raise her family. It was at this time when she was home with two young daughters that she began volunteering on local Boards and naturally fell into Event planning. She started accepting offers to plan local non-profit events and that turned into creating her company, HBL Events.
She now enjoys working for many local non-profit groups and has assisted in raising over $2 million dollars in her community. On a global level, she is honoured to be the Vice President of Travelers with Heart Education Society, an International Board which supports fundraising for a small island off of Belize
