Hi, I'm Heather

Hi, I'm Heather

My heart skips a beat at vintage sweaters, flea markets, and washing my hair in waterfalls.

I believe in chasing my own story. I believe in women empowering each other. I believe in telling my truth, and so I'm here to share mine.

You probably met me on Instagram. 

This is where I write and show you the pictures that didn't get picked for the 'gram.

Have a story to share? Email me. I'm all ears.

TEDx TALK


After fourteen months traveling and volunteering in villages in North Africa, I wrote an article about what volunteer work shouldn’t be. You can read a reprinted version here.

I didn’t expect the internet flurry in response to the article, but several reprints and a TEDx talk later, I think this is becoming my favorite topic.

I’ve shared my experiences* for service organizations including Rotary International, Amnesty International, and Engineers Without Boarders. Interested in joining the conversation? Email me your thoughts.
