A two week visit to the area after college at the University of Illinois was all that was needed for Heather to fall thoroughly in love with the Central Coast. Drawn to the vast hiking options, biodiversity of flora, and coastal splendor, she made the move across country. She spent the last decade in event coordination, and office management in the wine industry. Now, she has set her sights on pursuing a career helping to preserve this unique place.
In her free time, she can be found hiking with her dog, gardening, identifying wild edibles and native flowers, enjoying live music, and occasionally under the sea scuba diving.
