Heather grew up in a small town in Illinois and took a job in California right after graduation. When that job ended, she knew she wasn’t ready to go back to Illinois, so she enlisted in the Air Force and served for six years. After her enlistment was over, she soon became engaged and married her husband, Tony. They’ve been married for over 20 years. They have two boys, Tony and Niko. Heather has spent the last almost 20 years being a stay-at-home mom, finishing her business administration degree, working part-time, and volunteering at an almost full-time pace. Her various work experience includes office manager for a temp agency, real estate agent’s assistant, thrift shop manager, retail management, and operational team lead. She believes all these experiences have helped her understand how important it is to continue to build your skills because you don’t know when a great opportunity—like Powerhouse Planning—will come along. Heather is thankful she can continue her volunteer commitments and have the ability to maintain her life-work balance as she only has her youngest son at home for a few more years.
