Theo Heineman CRSP, CHSC, B. Sc. Ag.,
Founder and CEO
Growing up on a farm with no brothers, Theo was custom combining on her own at the age of 16. Purchasing her grandfather's farm at age 22 gave Theo a deep appreciation for the risks of entrepreneurship and her rural roots are the foundation of her values, work ethic and commitment to community.
Volunteering on the rural ambulance for over 10 years brought an awakening to the devastation of preventable injuries and illness.
This coupled with formal education and over 20 years experience in Occupational Safety and Health, Theo has certainly found her life mission helping other owners ensure that their people are safe and their businesses are viable.
With over 25 years of business experience, Theo has been awarded Entrepreneur of the Year and Canadian Safety Leader of the Year finalist.
