About the Participants:

Heather Fox: For the past 13 years, my husband Brad and I have lived and breathed real estate. It's our job, but it's also our passion. We LOVE it! We closed on our first home the day before we got married and haven't slowed down since. We've found our niche in renovating and transforming homes for our clients, as well as our own investments. We're hooked. I am design obsessed and can't believe I get to do it as my full time job! I still find myself taking the long way home to drive past old projects and give them a little wave.

Angelica Imhoede is a corporate girl gone creative. When she is not working in the world of accounting and finance, she is focused on her graphic design and product photography business. Part of her story is taking the time she needed to realize what her true passions in life were and making her dreams come true. In her spare time, she loves traveling and cooking on the weekends with her family. She resides in the lovely city of New Hope, where she lives with her husband and son.

Jennifer Boucher is a Digital and Technology program manager at Best Buy. Her career path is an example of how unexpected opportunities can lead to great experiences and the ups and downs of the journey can be an adventure. After 14 years at 3M in engineering roles, a master’s degree in Management of Technology, and a successful shift to marketing, Jennifer was seeking a more balanced life and took the leap to be a stay-at-home mom to her preschoolers. The on-ramp back to the workforce proved to be a challenge but a chance encounter with a friend opened the door to a complete career change and the next 7 years working in the exciting world of web development. She and her husband live in Apple Valley with their 17-year-old twins.
