Meet Heidi Read
Heidi Read says her venture into business ownership came about "organically." She was looking for a career opportunity that was flexible enough to work around her young family. Her interest in healthy living made Higher Ground Natural Foods a "natural" fit for her.
17 years has passed since she and her husband purchased the store, and her young family has grown, but Heidi still loves her job and the people that she rubs shoulders with every day. Heidi states, "I love the relationships around town with everyone from the folks at the coffee shop, to the cashiers at the grocery stores, to the people who shop at the store. We all have this town in common!"
Heidi is also a yoga teacher by night and her two business interests occupy a great deal of her time. However, volunteering is something she works into her schedule because she believes it's important to give back. Heidi and her husband raised their family in 100 Mile House and they realize the importance of the support and opportunity for small businesses.
