I’m Heather and I like to say I’m a hybrid … a Southern hybrid, thank you very much! I’m a born and bred Southern girl who moved to Southern California and left a large part of my heart there. Although the “southern” here is definitely a dichotomy in so many ways, it is a true explanation and representation of ME!

I’ve been frequently traveling the world since my first overseas trip in 2009. Along the way, my travel appetite continued to grow leading to nearly full-time travel in 2016. I can honestly say since that time, I haven’t looked back as I found my true connection and purpose.

Today, I have been to all 50 states and 43 countries (+ counting) across 6 continents. I’m taking my journey to discover as much of God’s creation as possible to new heights and am planning full-speed-ahead adventures!

Why I Travel

Realize Dreams • Grow Personally • Connect Culturally

I travel to learn more about God’s creation and to learn more about myself. Two simple statements which open up into the chase of an infinite amount of knowledge and discovery.

The more I travel, the more I see. The more I see, the more I learn. The more I learn, the more I understand. And, the more I understand, the more clarity I have in life and … most importantly … myself!

Travel allows me to realize my dreams, grow personally, and connect culturally. Those three things together are life-changing, life-transforming, and purpose-fulfilling.
