Heather is a proud alumna of West Virginia University. With a strong commitment to her education, Heather received a full academic scholarship to attend WVU, where she received a Bachelor of Science degree in Journalism, a minor in Political Science, and graduated Cum Laude in May 2018. In addition to graduating with honors, Heather was named the 2018 Outstanding Senior by West Virginia University Reed College of Media, and she made President’s List and/or Dean’s List each semester.
With a desire to combine her law degree with her journalism and political science background, Heather’s goal is to work as a full-time attorney and obtain part-time role as a legal commentator for a major news network. Ultimately, her objective is to host her own legal television show. Currently, Heather works part-time as a television host for the Lifestyle Network’s Florida Food Crawl and Oceans, which air on South Florida Comcast channels each Wednesday and Friday.
Heather enjoys volunteering for organizations close to her heart, such as Bit-By-Bit Therapeutic Medical Riding Center, Coastal Conservation Association (CCA) Florida, and various other charities. Heather is a lead volunteer at Bit-By-Bit, which combines Heather’s love for horses with her desire to play a vital role in the wellness of children and veterans with special needs. Heather is also a committee member for CCA Florida, which is a non-profit organization devoted to conserving Florida’s natural resources.
