Growing up in a family of cyclists and mountaineers, adventure is embedded in Heather’s DNA. She climbed her first mountain at age six, and rode her first century ride at fourteen. After graduating, she traversed the globe to scale the world’s tallest peaks, from the glaciers of Antarctica to the volcanoes of the Pacific. Upon returning home to the US, she spent two months bicycling solo across the country—from Jacksonville, Florida to Carmel, California—on her Jamis Aurora.
Her mission is to usher more women and girls into endurance sports; from teaching Brownie Scouts how to pack for a hike, to leading women on their first mountaineering expeditions and bikepacking journeys. She brings her love of the great outdoors, and her passion for pushing beyond what feels possible to the next generation of adventurers.
Heather is currently riding her Jamis Renegade S4 from Canada to Mexico.
