Heather is an actor/singer/music teacher living in Southern Illinois. She spent four years in Los Angeles learning the ins and outs of commercial and film acting. Since her return to Illinois in the fall of 2015, Heather has started on several new projects. She worked for a year and a half as the official acting teacher and vocal coach for Kre8iveED as well as the Chief Operations Officer. Kre8ive is a non-profit organization that strives "to provide the best opportunities in the arts for children in Southern Illinois". Currently, she is the owner/president of Wildflower Incorporated a theatrical company located in Southern Illinois. They have produced, in the past year, two productions: Steel Magnolias and most recently they had sold out houses for their production of To Kill A Mockingbird. She also directed the later production.
In addition to teaching, acting on the stage is still a major focus for Heather. The midwest region of the country offers many opportunities, and she intends on taking advantage of all of them. She is now represented as a SAG-AFTRA actor by The Avenue Agency in Nashville, TN.
