Heather became a health conscious vegan at the age of 14 after reading the book Fit For Life. She discovered new ways to enjoy her favorite foods, particularly her beloved desserts.  Heather’s curiosity was peaked when she stumbled upon a raw food restaurant at the age of 16, and by the time she was 18, she attended her first raw retreat for a month in California. Her passion for food led her to a two year culinary school program at the age of 18. Despite the fact that she wasn’t interested in most of the food being prepared, she gained valuable experience by learning the basics and all that the food industry has to offer. She went on to work in various restaurants, bakeries, and as a personal chef. Heather's serious sweet tooth led her to author four raw dessert ebooks: Just Desserts, Raw Party Parfait, Moonie Pie Recipes, and The Ultimate Raw Ice Cream Cake.
