One evening many years ago while reading with her children, Heather came across what today remains one of her favorite quotes in a book called Each Little Bird That Sings, by Deborah Wiles: “Open your arms to life! Let it strut into your heart in all its messy glory!” This has become a mantra she embraces daily.

Heather is a lifelong San Diegan and mom to two amazing teenagers and one very large, and very clingy Great Dane named Gus. She has a passion for all things outdoors, including hiking, gardening, and wildlife photography.
