Heather Kaney Burge earned her BSFCS degree in 2003 and immediately opened BleuBelle Boutique, which has been voted “Best Women’s Store” in Savannah for seven years straight. She also is the owner of BleuBelle Bridal, a couture bridal store that features designs by Vera Wang and Oscar de la Renta.

The Savannah Area Chamber of Commerce named BleuBelle Boutique the Small Business of the Year in 2007; and Burge was one of 30 prominent business leaders featured by the Savannah College of Art and Design’s 30-year celebration campaign. Burge also has been active in a variety of charitable programs, including Dancing with the Savannah Stars—to raise money for the Court-Appointed Special Advocate Association. She lives in Richmond Hill with her husband, Roger, and their daughter, Lawson.
