Heather comes from a background in outdoor writing. as well as working with brands & retailers in the run, bike, and outdoor industry. She grew up between Oregon and Cape Cod, MA and now lives in Hood River, OR. Her love for running started in 1st grade when her gym teacher put on a race around the high-school track. The butterflies and race bug grew on and evolved, to take her to running in the woods while racing for the University of Maine, Orono. Her dream of someday putting on some fun trail-races/ultras, now exists, in her backyard trails of Post Canyon. When not in front of her computer, or in the woods, you can find her making custom trucker hats for her friends, with her fabric markers.
