Although she's a native Marylander, through vacationing on the Outer Banks as a kid and attending Belmont Abbey College, Heather had always considered North Carolina her second home. Heather and her family moved to Brunswick County in 2007. Her husband, three kids, two dogs and one cat keep her on her toes, as does her classroom full of sparkly eyed elementary students. She loves pursuing her creative side through writing for NBM and teaching! Her future goals include spending more time at the beach with family, reading the entire Agatha Christie collection, and learning how to paint a masterpiece (well, maybe not a masterpiece...but certainly something other than paint-by-numbers).
