Her unique mix of experiences and career paths coupled with her life as a married mother of two has made her an oft-sought motivational speaker for youth and professional organizations alike.
Most recently, Heather has found herself on the other side of the camera. Her life became the subject of much media attention when she and her husband dropped everything, pulled their two sons under the age of 10 out of school and traveled the world for a year. The family visited 29 countries on six continents from June 2011 - June 2012, sharing the inspiring journey via social media and traditional media channels and inspiring people around the world.
