Heidi was one of the recipients of the Bell Media National Fellowship, and named as one of the Trailblazers by the ReelWorld Film Festival, received the WIFT-CBC Business of Broadcasting Mentorship award, and the CMPA Telefilm Producer Trainee award for associate producing a cross-platform feature documentary about North Korean defectors.
