I was born and raised in Burnaby, BC and have lived in the Lower Mainland my whole life. At a very early age I was interested in the workings of an office and have carried that passion into my everyday life and career. I have two grown sons' that are the pride and joy of my life.
I received my professional designation of "Certified Professional Secretary" in 1989. My varied experience over the years has taken me into many different environments, such as meat supplier, convenience stores, pharmacy and now automotive.

Originally from Toronto, Ontario, Heather is a graduate of Ontario College to Art and Design (OCAD) University majoring in Graphic Design. She brings enthusiasm and a love of great design to the Jim Pattison Auto Group. While attending OCAD, she was able to participated in an exchange, taking her half way around the world to Australia where she was able to gain further experience in different markets and cultures. It was this experience, in addition to her education, that led to working with some prominent companies and organizations, such as the Toronto Zoo and EF Educational Tours, before she moved out west to British Columbia. With a diverse background in design, Heather has worked on projects for both print and web and is excited about bringing that experience to her new role here as the creative designer for the eCommerce Department.

I started working with the Jim Pattison Auto Group as a part-time receptionist in 1988. Because of the Jim Pattison Auto Group's policy of promoting from within, I was given the opportunity to work my way up through the various accounting positions. The great mentorship that I received through the Jim Pattison Auto Group and its staff gave me the opportunity to became the Office Manager of the very first Jim Pattison Hyundai dealership in 2000. I have now taken on the role of providing assistance and mentorship for new administration staff with the Auto Group. I am looking forward to offering many individuals the same opportunity that I was given with this group.
