Victoria Healthy People was founded by Heidi (a nurse) and native of Victoria, BC. She grew up with like minded parents who have invested their lives in health education and wellness promotion in the greater Victoria region since 1969, before she was born. Heidi along with a group of friends / volunteers have been bringing quality health education programs to the greater Victoria and south island region since mid-2015. Heidi is a graduate of the Plant-Based Nutrition Certificate Program from Cornell University.
Heidi’s father, a family physician and her mother a nurse have been providing health education in the greater Victoria region for 45+years and now they continue the journey together.
