A freelance writer, her writing seeks to give voice to the unheard experiences of herself and of others, especially women. A Denver-native, Christian, and gay woman, Heather blogs regularly on her own website, covering stories from poverty issues, gender, Christianity, growing up, and inevitably awkward cultural encounters. Her writing has been featured in Communal Table, Africa Agenda, Peace Corps, and The Her Initiative. By day, Heather is the Director of Education & Advocacy for The Women’s Bakery, a social enterprise that empowers women through education and business. She deeply loves working on issues related to women’s empowerment because she believes that women are perhaps the most dynamic, strong, and incredible force on earth.
