Heather grew up in rural Oklahoma. At the age of seven she was critically injured in a motorcycle accident on a nearby country road. The tragic accident claimed the life of her nine year-old brother, Jon. Heather sustained third degree burns spanning 87% of her body, as well as internal damage to her aorta. Doctors calculated a 140% chance of her dying. Defying all odds Heather lived to tell her story; a story about God’s goodness in the midst of storms. In May 2012, she graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from the University of Oklahoma, and her story continues through her works as a nurse, writer and public speaker. She lives on the land in which she grew up with her husband Brandon and their four children.
