Heather is a lifelong traveler who has lived on four continents, traveled to 30+ countries, and is always planning her next journey, near or far.

When not traveling or talking about traveling, you can find her writing code for a living, tasting wines, laughing in multiple languages, and exploring her home base of Seattle.
