Heather is a certified Nurse Practitioner; she started her career as a nurse in the hospital and gravitated to home health care and ambulatory care over the years because of the relationships that develop between nurses and the people they care for. Heather has received two master’s degrees in nursing and administration and has vast experience including emergency medicine and acute care. Over her career Heather’s talent for connecting is due to her genuine interest in the ’other” and the gratification felt when another person feels heard and taken care of by her. Heather’s personal brand: “Engaging with people in need of mental health care with empathy, compassion, and a sincere focus on collaborative decision making to lead to positive outcomes” goes hand in hand with Cerebral’ s mission to make mental health care convenient and accessible to everyone everywhere. In Heather’s free time you will find her cooking meals for her friends, traveling and taking walks along the river near her home.
