Why I love Hope

Outside the college
Heather loves to laugh and travel with her family. She has four children: Halla, Ben, Alex and Ella, and a fantastic husband, Scott.
She changes her hairstyle like she changes her jewelry, viewing it as another accessory. She loves organizing and could spend days in The Container Store and often gets lost in office supply stores imagining the possibilities.
Heather craves knowledge and asks a lot of questions. She likes talking to people and hearing about what makes them unique.
