Heather was born and raised in Northern Idaho, 15 miles northwest of Priest River. After graduating high school, she moved to Portland, Oregon, to attend Bible college. She ended up in Banking for 5 years, transferring to Spokane, Washington, where she met her husband, a pastor. They moved to Hayward, California, for 5 years, where their two children were born, before moving back to Washington to be closer to family.
Heather and her family moved to the Tri-Cities area at the end of 2005 to help out at a small church in Kennewick. In 2007, Heather began working at a Hematology/Oncology practice as an Office Assistant. She worked in about every administrative department at the clinic over the next 14 years as the practice expanded and grew very busy, eventually becoming part of the local regional hospital. In late spring of 2021, she heard of the opportunity to work at Sunset Gardens Cemetery, and was ready for a new challenge outside of the healthcare industry. She loves her work here and is so excited to be a part of the Sunset Gardens team.
Outside of work, Heather volunteers at the church where her husband pastors, involved in the music department as well as the bookkeeping. She loves spending time with her family, traveling and making memories.
