After starting her career in labor and delivery, Heather segued into family medicine and women's health care. She has spent nearly a decade caring for women with symptoms of hormonal fluctuation.
“Healthcare involves the mind, body, and soul,” says Heather. “And helping women with their hormones can touch all three, because they play a huge part in mental health and emotional wellbeing. I can’t tell you how often a patient will tell me, once her hormones are better regulated, “I thought I was going crazy, but now I feel normal and well.”
Heather experienced the power of proper treatment personally: “At 44, I hit perimenopause and couldn’t sleep, gained weight, had no mental focus, and suffered from soaking hot flashes so bad that I often had to change my nursing scrubs,” she says. “Hormone replacement therapy changed my life.”
She has been mission-driven her entire career, finding time to found a non-profit to assist women escaping domestic violence and recovering from sexual trauma. Now Heather is tackling a new challenge: earning her certification as a Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner.
