Event speakers can be hit or miss, but Heather definitely hits a home run when she speaks. She’s an expert in her field, and communicates the difficult and often awkward topics of sex & intimacy in a way that is effective, fun, and puts everyone at ease. I have enjoyed both events that I’ve attended where she spoke.

Heather led a mindfulness workshop for our corporate wellness program and did not disappoint. She explained different mindfulness concepts, meditation techniques, and emphasized ways to implement these tools in our daily lives.
