Heather believes in teaching others about 'The Art of Living.' Heather co-authored with New York Times best-selling authors Dr. Wayne Dyer and Dr. Deepak Chopra in a book entitled: "Wake up, Live the Life you Love. Live Your Life on Purpose.' Unique and motivating, this book is filled with inspirational real life stories of people who choose to live their life on their own terms using true-life principles and loving it!! In this book, Heather talks about "Blueprints for Living" and mentions strategies she uses to help others evaluate whether their beliefs and perceptions are disabling or enabling them. Covering the entire Atlantic region, she enjoys the challenge of motivating clients and identifying alternate occupations using client's transferable skills and moving them forward even in the most 'hopeless cases'. She is known for her infectious enthusiasm and being a motivator of action. Heather recently completed her Lifestyle Coaching Level I certification and predicts this will be a growing occupation in the future as people become more aware of the need to make lifestyle changes for personal and health reasons. It is Heather's vision to share her boundless knowledge to 'innergize' others so they may experience the art of 'living' and find careers that resonate with their passions.
