In 2005, life needed to change for Heather Campbell. The choices were stay put in the big city, go to Russia for three months, take a job at The Hague, or make French fries on the highway in Pelly Crossing. Making French fries seemed the logical choice. Now, six years later, she’s just another story about a city girl coming under the spell of the Yukon.
From Pelly Crossing to Mayo to Faro, Heather’s found true love on the Yukon River, built a successful First Nation Consulting business, bought and renovated a beautiful home, and in 2009, was elected as the Town of Faro’s Mayor. Next on the agenda; getting married, completing her Class 6 driver’s license (not necessarily in that order) and heading down the newly chip sealed Campbell Highway on her custom Kawasaki motorcycle.
