Heather is an achiever. She is focused and dedicated in her work and strives to never stop learning. Her perfectionism is a big benefit for both her clients and the firm—she does not rest until she completes the task before her to the best of her ability. Heather’s desire to pursue a career in accounting was sparked by a high school class on the subject. She attributes her tireless dedications to her work to the example set by her family.


Heather lives in her hometown, Ravenden, Arkansas, with her husband, Rene, and their son, Aden. They also have a German Shepherd and two cats. Ravenden is a very rural area that offers a small, tight-knit community. Heather and her family have easy access to a lot of outside activities, such as boating on nearby rivers and off-roading in their Jeep. In her free time, Heather enjoys reading, attending rock concerts and festivals, and traveling.
