 Heather was born and raised in Drumheller, the community she loves. She has been happily married to her husband Kelly for the past 32 years and has been blessed with 3 amazing children, Trent, Taylor & Madison.

Heather spent most of her working career with her family at Hi-Way 9 Express Ltd. Her parents, John & Irene Kohut, started the business in 1969 with one truck. Her brothers, John, Darrell, Dean and herself became involved in the company from an early age. She was blessed to spend many hours working beside her family and gained multiple business, life and people skills. By the time the family sold in 2011, they were servicing over 70 communities in Alberta and employed over 500 people.

After Hi-Way 9 Express, Heather started a blind and drapery company in 2013 called Made in the Shade Blinds & More South Central Alberta. In February 2017 she sold the company to Kerri Kuefler.

She then began a website along side her daughter Madison, called HCM Lifestyle.
The website is about inspiring stories and ideas from everyday people.

As Mayor Heather is excited to give back to the community she loves so much,
Heather wants Drumheller to be known as the friendliest, cleanest, and most sought after community in Alberta!
