Melanie Heathers (Publisher)
Entrepreneur, mom and most of all a true people person, became the new face of Mississauga Kids and Pumpkinseed Publishing Ltd. in August 2012. An entrepreneur who prides herself on her work ethic, Melanie has over ten years of experience and a strong reputation in the paper and print industry. While she knows what it takes to bring out a sleek magazine fresh off the press, she is equally aware of both the pain points and pleasures of educating and entertaining kids. A mom to two adorable children and a caring spouse, Melanie is extremely excited to carry forward the vision of Mississauga Kids. She looks forward to bringing smiles to the faces of thousands of families in Mississauga. Melanie strives to connect local parents with local business by helping parents find the things they need for the kids they love.
