2018 Heather's Choice Retreat

Posted by on

"Is Heather's Choice a lifestyle brand?" I guess the answer would have to be YES! It was an honor to bring together some of our employees, ambassadors, affiliates, and board members for our first company retreat! We spent two days and one night in the Alaskan backcountry rafting, eating, playing campfire games and getting to know each other. I know I made many memories that won't be quick to fade!
