Heather Hughes has been working in healthcare for 20 years, and her husband’s family has been involved in farming and agriculture for generations. This uniquely qualifies her to lead a company that produces the highest quality and most effective CBD products, understanding and overseeing every step of creation, from plant to person.
Heather grew up in Jamestown, North Dakota. She obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Marketing from Minnesota State University Moorhead, and an MBA from North Dakota State University in Fargo. She then moved to Southern California where she began working in healthcare management, and where she and her husband purchased a grapefruit orchard.
While in North Dakota, Heather worked for a research organization which did pharmaceutical testing of generic drugs and for which she wrote the final FDA reports. In Southern California, Heather has worked for over a decade as the Director of Care Coordination for a major health care management company. Working with wonderful nurses and teams of dedicated healthcare professionals, she became aware of the harsh realities of opioid and other prescription drug abuse.
A few years ago she realized the benefits of using industrial hemp-derived CBD in treating an extraordinary number of ailments. Meanwhile, the Asian Citrus Psyllid was slowly spreading in California and carrying a deadly tree virus that had infected about 90 percent of the citrus crop in Florida. So she applied to the California Department of Food and Agriculture and became registered to cultivate industrial hemp. Simultaneously, Heather was sought-out by a group of health care professionals who asked her to join them in creating a CBD company. Their common goal was to help patients manage chronic conditions like pain and anxiety in a more natural, plant-based way.
After hundreds of hours of research, product testing and consultation, Heather and her team brought BioFit 360 to market, sourcing the products from the most trusted manufacturers with the highest ratings. Soon an esteemed crop of experts will be collaborating on manufacturing BioFit 360 products using industrial hemp organically grown in the Hughes Citrus orchard.
In addition to working with BioFit 360, Heather is the busy mother of three, is active in animal rescue, and in her rare moments of leisure, she enjoys early mornings with a good book and a cup of Irish Breakfast tea.
