West Michigan Beekeeping observations- Heather Boerema.
Heather Boerema became interested in honeybees in February of 2014. She remembers, “It was like a flip switched on in my brain.” and there hasn't been a day since where she hasn't thought of or worked with honeybees in one way or another. She was blessed to be mentored from day one by Mel Disselkoen in the OTS, On The Spot, queen rearing system. She has been able to produce nucs from her northern overwintered MI stock each season and enjoys mentoring others in the OTS queen rearing method. Recently, honeybees led her to the island of Andros in the Bahamas to mentor a local beekeeper there.
When not working with her 50-100 colonies, Heather enjoys photographing bees and other pollinators, gardening, working as an ER RN and spending time with her husband and four children.
