she/her || Heather has been actively embracing her nerdier and geekier tendencies her entire life. She was started down this path at a young age as she was raised on a well-rounded diet of British humor, science fiction, fantasy, musicals, video games, and Saturday morning cartoons.
Her parents always supported her love of learning, allowing her to devour reading material quickly and voraciously. This included driving her around so that she could work her way through entire Science-Fiction/Fantasy sections at her local libraries and a few book stores. It also included depriving her of non-school related reading materials as punishment, rather than grounding her (no joke folks—this is truth).
Heather’s foray into her geekier side became a full-blown submersion after playing Dungeons and Dragons with her friends her freshman year of college. She immediately loved it and has been playing RPGs ever since.
She is also an avid animal lover with a special affinity for felines and has worked at a cat-only veterinary hospital for over 12 years. She can definitely be classified as Nerdsmith’s resident “crazy cat lady”. She may be a few polyhedrals short of a full set, but to be fair…the cats stole them…
