Heather was able to buy cocaine undercover, chase spies all over the world, interrogate rapists, and stand up for victims who had lost their voice.
How did Heather stay safe & become an empowering a Supervisory Special Agent? Is she a black-belt ninja? A gun-toting mamma? A tough-looking GI Jane type?
Nope. She’s no different than you. Heather often get confused for a 2nd grade teacher. But looks can be deceiving. Along the way, she learned stereotypes can sometimes work to your advantage. How was she able to stay safe and catch so many bad guys? She bucked the stereotype. The bad guys thought Heather should look a certain way. When she challenged those stereotypes, their defenses went down, making it easy to beat them at their own game.
You see, strength & power have more to do with confidence and empowerment than physical skills.
Heather learned how to truly listen to her intuition to stay safe in dangerous situations and become a powerful leader. Now, she will share those secrets with you.
Before Heather’s crazy adventure began, she was a Kappa Delta at Ball State University and earned a Bachelor of Science in criminal justice & psychology.
