One evening many years ago while reading with her children before bed, Heather came across what today remains one of her favorite quotes in the book, 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 is a mantra she felt in her core, and still embraces to this day.
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.
