Oceanvista Consulting Inc. is literally a local mom-and-pop business made up of us, Heidi Tattrie Rushton and Ed Rushton. We are the mom and pop to two Itsy Bitsy Haligonians, the other “family business.” Heidi is the main contact and the writer; Ed is the behind the scenes guy managing the books and pushing the papers.
Heidi Tattrie Rushton
Funny how once you figure out what you want to be when you grow up, you often realize you knew it all along. In my case I figured it out by age eight, took the scenic route through the first part of my career and education, and finally made my way back to my original dream. Now I’m harnessing the experience I gained during my diverse education and professional background to create content that makes people listen and learn.
I was born with a full-blown Type A brain who needs a minute-by-minute timeline just to get through a Saturday at home, AND the dreamy soul of an artist who can spend hours lost in books and writing stories about imaginary lands. This all works to my client’s advantage as I’m able to channel these duelling gifts into my own unique brand of creativity. I can see your big picture and take ideas to places you hadn't thought of before, all the while keeping all the details on track to ensure nothing gets missed along the way.
My writing skills were honed first through the prestigious Foundation Year Program at the University of King’s College, then at Dalhousie University with a Bachelor of Recreation Administration, and then a Masters of Education in Lifelong Learning at Mount Saint Vincent University. Professionally I spent almost a decade working at Mount Saint Vincent University in the Admissions, Recruitment and Marketing departments; and then ran my own freelance writing business as a regularly contributing writer for many local publications. I also worked for the St Margaret's Bay Seniors Association streamlining their office procedures, as well as researching and then writing all of their volunteer policies and procedures and a marketing plan from scratch. For the past four years I have also been writing and managing my popular Halifax family resource blog.
