My conversation with Heather was like sitting down with a friend talking about life. Heather shared candidly the story of growing up without her Dad in her life, and how watching her Mom do what she needed to do to take care of her, was the greatest lesson in how to be independent.  Heather is the finest example of what comes when you set goals for yourself, and stay dedicated to what brings you joy.
