Heather is a lover of children and a believer in human beings. She has a gift of being able to leave convention and tradition behind to find fresh ideas. Her passion is to remove negativity from homes and relationships and to provide hope to all with whom she comes in contact. Math is her surprising vehicle to get effective parenting principles into families and change the face of education.
Her favorite things to do in her spare time are to sing harmonies with her (five) kids, read inspiring books, and philosophize with friends and strangers alike, but she has also been known to skydive, hang glide, keep up with her brothers snowmobiling, and drive much too fast. Her claim to fame was–-as Stephen Covey’s assistant of many years–-typing up, brainstorming with him, and editing his book, Seven Habits of Highly Effective People. For the opportunity of working so closely with him, she likes to say that she gave up her degree for her education.
Her central guiding quotes: From the closed-mindedness that won’t accept new truth; from the laziness that will accept half truth; From the arrogance that thinks it knows all truth; Good Lord, deliver me. ~Kenyan Prayer and “Anything worth doing is worth doing poorly at first.” ~Oliver DeMille…and of course, “The thing about candy bars is that one’s not big enough if you can eat it.” ~Garfield the Cat
