As a Chicago native, Heather was blessed with the opportunity to attend all kinds of theatre performances from a young age. Born with a desire to perform, her love for theatre grew as she became a Junior Company member at Jeff Award winning Circle Theatre in Forest Park. She was able to learn from Chicago professionals, work behind the scenes of award winning shows, as well as develop her talents and perspective on theatre. In high school there was nothing more invigorating than taking the El downtown to enjoy Thai food and a new show with friends.
Heather attended Western Michigan University where she received her BFA in Acting as well as a BS in Sociological Psychology. After graduating she became a company member at Playhouse on the Square in Memphis where she was nominated for multiple Ostrander Awards as well as two Broadway World awards. Next she spent two summers with Rocky Mountain Repertory Theatre. Upon returning to Chicago, Heather has performed in multiple readings and cabarets across the city. She is excited about all of the positive changes in the theater world and cannot wait to be a part of it all.
Outside of theatre, Heather is passionate about social and racial justice, mental health awareness, and traveling to unfamiliar places. When she is not performing you can find Heather in the kitchen creating something from the NYTimes cooking section, collaging, or building bonfires with her exceptional friends.
