Heather has spent the last several years working in the healthcare industry. After working in direct patient care she quickly realized that her ultimate goal was to make people healthier. Not with pills, but the same way she healed herself from a painful autoimmune disease. After her personal discovery of how food impacts the body's ability to heal naturally she made it her mission to educate and encourage others.
