She spent the first nine years of her career as the Marketing Director for a group of medical and chiropractic clinics in Southeast Michigan.

She began her career performing refinance and purchase transactions in both the conforming and subprime markets. Before long, Heidi opened her own mortgage company - Zurich Mortgage Corporation. The company slogan supported the company's vision, "Protect Your Family - Get a Second Opinion."
