Heather is most proud of being able to balance all three parts of her life – work, school, and family, and she enjoys vacationing at the beach and taking day adventures around Pittsburgh. Heather’s favorite message of advice comes from Henry David Thoreau: “Go confidently in the direction of your dreams, live the life you have imagined.”
