Heather says that she’s a hustler by nature. If she has free time, she’s going to fill it with meaningful and interesting projects.

“I took on every project I could get my hands on just to build up my portfolio, and eventually people started finding me through word of mouth.”

What Heather likes most about her home is the diversity of the neighborhoods and being able to walk the entire city.

“Whenever I have an appointment or meeting in another part of town, I’ll make an effort to spend my whole day there so that I can explore everything that’s new and changing,” Heather said.

“I’ll work out of a coffee shop for a bit, stroll through the side streets, and maybe pop in a boutique or two. DC is such an evolving and vibrant city. It deserves far more credit than just being a government town!”
