Heather received her formal education at Johnson & Wales Culinary Institute in Charleston, SC where she graduated with a degree in Baking and Pastry Arts. While evolving as a culinary trained chef, her background as a Pastry Chef developed her keen eye for detail in her food presentations.

Heather continues to develop her vision for the food at Savory Moment Catering and is very involved in daily operations while becoming increasingly influential in her community and that of the culinary world.
