Heide is an energetic writer with a passion for online news and video production.
She journeyed out west to Calgary in March, 2017, leaving the East Coast behind for the mountain view.
Heide first started with the Global News family as an intern with Global Halifax, working in both broadcast and the online department, before joining the team full-time in September 2015 as the Online Producer for Global Halifax and New Brunswick.
After a year-and-a-half in Halifax, Heide made the move to join the Global Calgary online team to be a part of their growing online and video presence.
She completed the One-Year Bachelor of Journalism at University of King’s College in Halifax, Nova Scotia, after completing a Bachelor of Communication Studies and English at Memorial University of Newfoundland.
Before becoming a full-time member of the Global News team, she also worked Metro Halifax and CBC Halifax.
When not at work Heide enjoys yoga, cooking, travelling and is excited to get to know a different side of the country. She also really loves and misses the Dartmouth ferry.
