About Heather

Heather was raised in the small town of Dorris in Siskiyou County where she met her high school sweetheart Bryon. They were married in 2003 and now have two boys, Sam and Zack. Together they run their family farm in Modoc County growing hay, vegetables and pumpkins, raising highland cattle and running the County’s only Pumpkin Patch each fall.

Heather was raised by a single mom working multiple jobs to make ends meet. She put herself through college attending Shasta College and Chico State to earn her degree in Agriculture Science. In 2016, she earned her Master’s Degree in Leadership & Management. Heather has seen firsthand the challenges in our education system as an elementary and high school teacher. Heather still teaches a Public Safety Class at Modoc High School. Heather also served as the County 4-H Coordinator through UC Davis.

As a small business owner of her family farm and having previously owned a small local newspaper, Heather understands the constant obstacles of operating your own business. She knows the state needs to make it easier to open and run a small business, and to hire more people at good paying jobs.

For the last almost 5 years, Heather served Modoc County as the Deputy OES (Office of Emergency Services) Director at the Sheriff’s Office. Heather served as the Public Information Officer for the Sheriff’s Office, organized evacuations due to wildfire and flooding, coordinated support, managed recovery, and assisted on neighboring wildfires such as the Bootleg, Dixie, McKinney and many more.
