Heather is an Arkansas transplant from San Antonio, TX but now calls Little Rock, AR her home. She began her career as a nursing student who's focus was on women's health and midwifery. When she fell pregnant, she took a break from school and became a labor Doula and hasn't looked back!

She started with training in labor support and childbirth education. But when she decided to make a full-time job as a Doula, she signed up for labor doula, postpartum doula, childbirth education and placenta prep trainings through ProDoula, not only to take her career to the next level, but to bring a higher level of professional support to her clients by starting northeast Arkansas' first premier doula agency. After seeing a greater need than she was able to provide alone, she teamed up with Sondra, to bring more resources and supportive services to her area. Heather is Arkansas's First Certified Postpartum Placenta Specialist. 

Heather is a wife to an amazing husband, Justin, and mother of a very special rainbow baby, now toddler, Noah. They enjoy camping trips to local state parks, traveling to Texas to see her family, and has recently gone back to school to complete her nursing degree. In her free time, she enjoys knitting, gardening and cooking.
