Less than 1% of female founders achieve over a million dollars in annual revenue. Heather founded her first entrepreneurial venture and in less than 18 months, reached a million in revenue. This milestone enabled her to enjoy a smoother and more sustainable entrepreneurial journey. Heather attributes her success to her background of 20+ years working in professional sales and marketing with disruptive and innovative technologies. She gained a wealth of experience, climbing the corporate ladder at AT&T by successfully bringing a series of innovative technologies to market and driving sustainable revenue streams. She held several VP of sales and marketing roles for leading and start-up technology companies by her late 30’s.
Then the entrepreneurial desire took hold, grew quickly and opened up a path of career enlightenment, for years to come. She discovered entrepreneurship was a glorious path to freedom on all levels. Entrepreneurship gave her freedom to create, freedom to schedule her time, freedom to grow on all levels and lead a most bountiful life in every way. Her way wanted a world of work with meaning, lots of time for her family, girlfriends, walking in the rain and a ton of money on top was a bonus for it fuelled her many ideas. One idea in particular grew near and dear. She had to do something about it. From renting her first Church sanctuary where she spoke about women’s empowerment in 2011, to now, where she leads an on fire community of women entrepreneurs in Canada and Chile, Heather is one of Canada’s leading warriors for women’s equality, through entrepreneurship.
Her mission is to have 10,000 women realizing their inner dreams to be an accomplished woman entrepreneur with a sustainable and successful economic model. To achieve this, she started Women on the Move Inc., Canada’s leading business accelerator for Female Founders, ready to scale. Over the past four years, Women on the Move has trained, coached and advised over 1,000 Female Founders.
Recently, The Business Professional Women’s Network (BPW Canada) and The Canadian Federation of Business and Professional Women recognized Women on the Move for their commitment to accelerate women’s start-ups, promote STEM industry procurement from Women led SMEs and to deliver on a vision to move 10,000 Canadian women on their million dollar entrepreneurial path.
Today she travels between Canada and Chile, with a dedicated team, delivering the Moving to a Million™ system to high value women entrepreneurs. This equips female founders to establish successful and sustainable business ventures. At 55 she feels fortunate, fearless and fiercely devoted to women’s equality, and economic independence through entrepreneurial success. Her vision is when she is 90, she will have thousands of women asking her one question “why did you only take us to a million?”

“With their determination and smiles, WOM helped me expand my business (from Quebec) to Toronto and the Ontario market. Heather pushed me beyond my self-imposed limits to get to after more prospects and more qualified clients.
My revenue tripled within 3 months of engaging with Women on the Move. And in the 1st quarter of this year, I equaled my total revenue for 2016.”
“When I first launched my nutrition coaching business last year I had many prospects within reach, but very few were converting into clients. I knew I needed to learn sales tactics to help accelerate my business. When I came to Women on the Move and met Nicky, she understood right away what was holding me back and she helped me implement sales skills and strategies, and from the very first session I completely turned around my business! I increased my closing rates by 90% and saw an increase of 90% in the number of clients I was able to convert. Six month’s later it is continuing to grow while I have her at my side! Nicky has become my go-to whenever I am looking to achieve new sales targets. Amazing to work with, she really has a knack of selling and a way of talking to potentials and she is tranfering her skills to me. I’m really proud I made this investment in my business.”
“Heather is a remarkable woman of expertise, knowledge and insight. This along with her infinite energy, kind spirit and wisdom has provided me direction and motivation to propel myself as an entrepreneur and business owner. She has helped me to define strategy, tools and tactics to apply to my business which allowed progression when I felt halted. Her support is multifaceted and she goes over and beyond….she truly cares about her clients and will do whatever she can to help them drive success! Thank you so much Heather.!!!!”
