Hi! I’m Heather and I like to say I’m a hybrid as I’m a born and bred Southern girl who lived in California for a few years and left part of her heart there! ! I hope you take a look around and love what you see! I have a passion for travel, food and photography and I am so excited to share my experiences with all of you! I hope to discover as much of God’s creation as possible before I leave it and I would love to have you follow along on my journey!
So like I said, I was born and raised in the South! I am an RN and practiced for seven years which included working as a traveling RN (I highly recommend this to RNs if you are considering this route!). After getting married, we spent the first four years of our marriage in Los Angeles. I loved it!
After moving back to the South and learning that a lot of filming had moved from LA to Atlanta, I decided to take a break from nursing and dab in the entertainment business in the form of background acting. I had a lot of great experiences on well-known film and TV sets as a background actor and was seriously considering going all out to try and move up in the acting world when … I started getting random travel opportunities!
I come from a travel enthusiastic family so traveling wasn’t new to me. My parents traveled with us a good bit growing up and they still travel a good bit today! There were really no goals or intentions in regards to my new travels. I just took opportunities as they came up and not too long after, I found myself turning down calls from casting companies to work on the set of some of my favorite films and TV shows because I was traveling so much!
Over the past seven years, I have had opportunities to see gorgeous places all over the world and I have loved every minute of it! With all this newfound travel came questions and comments such as “How do you get to travel so much?”, “I love to see your photos!”, “I live vicariously through you!” and “What do you recommend for going to this place, using this product or doing this activity?” fairly regularly.
After thinking about it for quite some time, in the fall of 2015, I decided it was time to share my travel journeys and experiences with others! The name of my blog came to me pretty fast. How and when to dive into it required a little more thought for me. I’m definitely a do-your-homework kind of girl! With the support of my husband, family and friends and the help of a blogger friend and mentor, I established Trimm Travels in the spring of 2016, went from RN – to background actress – to travel/food/photography blogger and I haven’t looked back! Thank you so much for being a part of it!
