I have had the privilege of knowing Heather for almost 3 years. What began as a casual acquaintance grew into her becoming my mentor and eventually my friend. She has an amazing intuition, an ability to sense things about a person that she should have no way of knowing. The truth is Heather came into my life at what I would consider the lowest points I had ever experienced. She has a knack for seeing the silver lining in every situation. I believe that God sent her to me to keep my head above water and to not give up on myself. She continues to tell me what I need to hear, not what I want to hear. She can help a person to grow in any given situation without ever knowing that they are being “mentored”. She has empowered me to see things about myself and my abilities that, to be honest, I never knew I had in me or would be capable of achieving. She has helped me to grow both emotionally and spiritually. She continues to motivate me to be the very best version of myself possible.
I have spent the last two years struggling through a separation/divorce, along with raising three beautiful kids. Heather has helped me navigate this tumultuous time by guiding me, comforting me, and most importantly supporting me in my feelings and concerns. Had I not had her support on this journey I believe I would have found myself in a dark spot, unable to recover.I am so grateful that God placed her in my life. I was in need of guidance and she was happily there each step of the way. Through attempt after attempt to salvage my marriage and the eventual demise of the same, Heather would listen, encourage, guide and help me to reframe my view. Yes, my future looks different now than I had planned, but it is still going to be gloriously bright! Heather always says we have to embrace the altered path and step by step…I will.
On June 6, 2014 I met Heather for the first time. She joined our group with the goal of taking us to the next level as a store. We were already a dedicated, hard working team, but we were really a group of well-meaning individuals trying to run a million dollar store. Heather began the process of studying each staff member. She would learn our strengths and our weaknesses, studying each person until she was able to coach them into better, more capable people.
Heather created a work environment that was fun, yet maintained accountability. She never saw just a “big business” trying to be successful. She taught and lived that by each person growing and becoming successful the company would automatically become successful. She was loyal to a fault, not only to the company philosophies but to the individual team member as well, a quality I had never witnessed. She also maintained a loyalty to herself and her own principles, not wanting to even appear unethical in any situation.
With her guidance we did take the store to the next level, and many levels after that. However, more importantly, anyone that was coachable grew in ability and confidence, professionally and personally , and most continue to maintain contact and reach out to her even now. Those who were not coachable and had to leave our team also continue to maintain contact with Heather and that , I believe, says much about her abilities as a mentor.

I’ve known Heather for many years, but unfortunately, due to her family moving away I’d not really kept in contact too much. I very recently went through a bad break up with someone I loved.I contacted Heather hoping to get some advice on how to deal with what I was feeling, but I got a lot more than I asked for.I had no idea that she had become a personal growth mentor and was really happy to start sessions with her. I went in hoping to get help dealing with heartbreak, but in the few sessions I have had so far I have learned a lot more about myself which has helped me deal with the pain that I felt in my heart. People who I work with have noticed a change.I look forward to growing as a person thanks to our sessions.
