“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…. We’re already planning our next training with Heather!”

Maryland Library Association

Heather is no stranger to high stress environments. She launched her first business in her 20s, sold it in her 30s, then worked on a suicide hotline in honor of her uncle who died by suicide.

Somewhere between these two endeavors, Heather was diagnosed with shingles, a stress-related illness, prompting her nurse practitioner to proclaim, “You need to get a grip on your stress. Try yoga.” Little did they know at the time that the practice of yoga would lead to a serious personality change, and a complete overhaul of Heather’s hopes and dreams.

Today, Heather runs the Frederick Meditation Center in the heart of downtown Frederick Maryland, and the Mindfulness & Grief Training Institute. She is the author of Mindfulness & Grief, and hosts a podcast by the same name. She also serves on the Advisory Board to the highly respected military loss organization TAPS, and mentors mindfulness teachers and yoga therapists-in-training.

As a mindfulness speaker, she travels around the country teaching mindfulness for leadership, work/life balance, self-care, and personal growth.
