Heather is a native daughter of Virginia. Born & raised in Falls Church. She cut her teeth in local and state politics at her father's side working election as a young girl in Fairfax county when the area was not so blue. She left the NOVA area to get a BS in Political Science from Radford University in Southwest VA. After college, she worked for the U.S, State Department in the Information Resource Management Office doing financial acquisitions and working with Under Secretary for Management. It was at the State Department that she met her husband Pat. They started a family in 2002 and that is when she got involved in her hometown of Stafford politics.
Love her or hate her she speaks her mind and does not mince words. You will always know where you stand with Heather. She may run for office one day or just be the thorn in elected officials side.
