The Team

Heather Hughes

President

Heather has been working in healthcare for 20 years, and her husband’s family has been involved in farming and agriculture for generations. This uniquely qualifies her to lead a company that produces the highest quality and most effective CBD products, understanding and overseeing every step of creation, from plant to person.

Heather grew up in Jamestown, North Dakota. She obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Marketing from Minnesota State University Moorhead, and an MBA from North Dakota State University in Fargo. She then moved to Southern California where she began working in healthcare management, and where she and her husband purchased a grapefruit orchard.

While in North Dakota, Heather worked for a research organization which did pharmaceutical testing of generic drugs and for which she wrote the final FDA reports. In Southern California, Heather has worked for over a decade as the Director of Care Coordination for a major health care management company. Working with wonderful nurses and teams of dedicated healthcare professionals, she became aware of the harsh realities of opioid and other prescription drug abuse.

A few years ago she realized the benefits of using industrial hemp-derived CBD in treating an extraordinary number of ailments.

Meanwhile, the Asian Citrus Psyllid was slowly spreading in California and carrying a deadly tree virus that had infected about 90 percent of the citrus crop in Florida.

So she applied to the California Department of Food and Agriculture and became registered to cultivate industrial hemp. Simultaneously, Heather was sought-out by a group of health care professionals who asked her to join them in creating a CBD company. Their common goal was to help patients manage chronic conditions like pain and anxiety in a more natural, plant-based way.

After hundreds of hours of research, product testing and consultation, Heather and her team brought BioFit 360 to market, sourcing the products from the most trusted manufacturers with the highest ratings.

Soon an esteemed crop of experts will be collaborating on manufacturing BioFit 360 products using industrial hemp organically grown in the Hughes Citrus orchard.

In addition to working with BioFit 360, Heather is the busy mother of three, is active in animal rescue, and in her rare moments of leisure, she enjoys early mornings with a good book and a cup of Irish Breakfast tea.

 

Katelin Mabry

Director of Operations

A Southern California girl from the start, Katelin is a rare combination of both left and right brain skills that enable her to be refreshingly creative while also being laser focused and efficient at the same time.

Katelin has a BA in Studio Art from the University of California Riverside, this background has allowed her to approach business and logistics with a creative perspective. She excels in breaking down extremely complicated information in a creative way so that it can be easily communicated to people of all backgrounds. Professionally, she has been using those skills to help doctors understand necessary medical coding requirements from a business perspective.

Having worked as a Business Analyst with BioFit 360 President Heather Hughes for 5 years, they both had plenty of time to share their mutual interests in healthcare, nutrition, sustainable farming and the environment. Heather knew of Katelin’s gifts for creative problem solving and organization. She was one of the first additions to the BioFit 360 team.

Katelin values the opportunity to address major health related issues that are often difficult to resolve, including chronic pain and anxiety. “These are issues that the traditional healthcare system has had challenges dealing with,” she says.

Katelin is currently coming up with creative ways to assure that BioFit 360 runs smoothly and efficiently, from production to delivery, making sure that the consumers’ health care needs are met in a way only the best quality CBD products can accomplish.

In her off hours, Katelin likes to spend time with her husband and her two mini-Schnauzers. You’ll also find her painting with oils, cooking gourmet meals, and being out and about, enjoying nature.
