In August 1993 Heather was hit by a police motorcycle, suffering the loss of her left leg below the knee, a crushed pelvis and punctured lung. To save her amputated leg from constant infection Heather had to go on a plant-based diet. Because of this Heather created the pioneering plant based multi-award winning ethical international Vegan food company, VBites, which now exports to 24 countries, has over 104 plant-based products in its range and has won an incredible 80 awards.
Heather, not only owns 4 purely plant-based manufacturing factories, but is also the owner of VBites Ventures, a company which invests in brilliant plant-business concepts, helping entrepreneurs with plant-based ideas and vision to transform those ideas into fully-fledged businesses.
As well as being an entrepreneur, renowned public and motivational speaker, Heather has worked tirelessly to aid survivors of war and landmine explosions.
Heather is also a Gold medal winning Para-athlete in ski racing, a World Record holder in 4 winter sports and the fastest disabled female speed skier in the world at 166.84km/ph.
