“Heather is a seasoned professional whose commitment and passion shines through her work and her presentations.”

National Hospice & Palliative Care Association

“[Heather's] work is thoughtful, focused and well researched. I trust her to work with our donor families because of her compassion and openness about her own grief journey. She knows what she’s talking about, but more importantly she helps you find what works best for you.”


"Heather's approach was exactly the right balance for our group. She provided historical context for mindfulness practice, then led us through a number of hands-on exercises. The large audience was a blend of novices & current mindfulness practitioners. They were all equally engaged throughout her talk. We're already planning our next training with Heather!”
