Hi. I’m Heather. And, I am most passionate about people.
A freelance writer and counselor-in-training, my work seeks to give voice to the unheard experiences of others, especially women. Sharing stories has the capacity to bring more love into the world, and that’s something I can’t get enough of.
A Denver-native, Christian, and gay woman, I blog regularly with aims to find the hidden stories among us. My creative writing portfolio includes featured spots in Communal Table, the United States Peace Corps blog, The Women’s Bakery blog, Love Boldly and Ravishly. I also have contributed to Africa Agenda, a media outlet for positive African news, based in Denver, Colorado.
By day, I am the Director of Education & Development for The Women’s Bakery, a social enterprise that empowers women through education and business. I deeply love working on issues related to women’s empowerment because I believe that women are the most dynamic, strong, and incredible force on earth. I am also pursuing my Master’s in Counseling, with hopes to be a women-focused, community based therapist in the future.
I enjoy being outside in the Colorado sunshine, rollerblading, traveling, watching documentaries, drinking black coffee in the morning (red wine at night), and learning more about social justice. For inspiration, I frequently turn to Maya Angelou and agree when Angelou says, “my mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style.”
I live in Denver, Colorado with my fiancee.
