Heather’s career started in 1989 with an appearance in the TV series “Who’s The Boss”, which was followed by the role of Caroline in the made-for-television film “She‘ll Take Romance” in 1990. Then in 1991 she was selected for the role of Victoria Newman in the soap opera “The Young and the Restless”, and stayed on the show until 2003, increasing her net worth to a large degree, and also garnering several prestigious awards, including two Daytime Emmys in the category Outstanding Younger Actress in a Drama Series and one Soap Opera Digest Award in category Outstanding Younger Lead Actress. Soon after her stint on the show was done, Heather found new long-term engagement, this time as Kelly Cramer in the soap opera “One Life to Live”, which lasted from 2004 to 2006, adding to her net worth.
Having built her popularity on soap opera roles, Heather continued the tradition by gaining the role of Katie Logan in “The Bold and the Beautiful” in 2007. Since then, she has appeared in more than 1100 episodes, which has only increased her net worth and cemented her position as soap opera queen. Thanks to her outstanding performance on the show, Heather has won three more Daytime Emmy Awards in categories Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series and Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series.

Regarding her personal life, Heather has been married to James Achor since 2011; the couple has one child together, son Zane Alexander, born in October 2012.
Left The Young and the Restless (1973) in 2003 after 13 years because she wasn't happy with her lack of storyline and because the producers tried to renegotiate her contract to get her to take a substantial cut in pay. Very soon after that, she joined One Life to Live (1968) in the recast role of Kelly Cramer and has openly expressed her delight with the show and the role.
