Heather’s journey began in Bellevue, Nebraska, where she grew up. In 1995, she earned her Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Nebraska Medical Center. Her dedication to serving her country led her to commission as a Navy Nurse Corps officer shortly after graduation. Heather’s diverse military experience allowed her to serve in various specialties, but it was during her time as a labor and delivery nurse that her passion for women’s health truly blossomed.
