Dedicated to teaching children through discovery, play and exploration it is her mission to connect students to their own unique self-expression and nurture their creativity.

Witnessing the power of the arts and communication firsthand, Heather has been working with children since 2009 through Young Storytellers Foundation, 826LA, private & group classes and the 3-6 year old kid’s yoga class at Golden Bridge, where she received her teacher certification through the Light Leaders program. Yoga has been part of her life practice for over 12 years.

Creating positive change, connecting people to their passion and being of service to communities is at the heart of Heather’s work.
