Heather was born in Baltimore County, Maryland in the early 1960s and raised on a small farm. She found art early and began selling her wildlife paintings around age eleven. From there, it became a passion and a vocation. By 1983, at age 19, Heather had made her way to Africa on a zoological expedition across Kenya. There, she discovered a land of massive beauty which resonated with her on a level that has never been surpassed. As she discovered the beautiful country, she also discovered the black market ivory trade by mistake when she bought an ivory bracelet from the Maasai. Later, in Mombasa, Heather was arrested and jailed in a harrowing experience that she would later recount in writing and use as a leadership keynote speech. After being married and having two children, Heather became divorced in 2008 and rediscovered her love of writing. Since becoming an ACSM certified Well Coach and personal trainer in 2010, Heather has written six books including two health workbooks, and several non-fiction books: Caught on the Equator; [two versions], The Art of Becoming, and The Colonel’s Way. History has always been an interest for Heather, and now much of her efforts go into writing screenplays and other stories based in history, real characters and real events. Armed with her grandfather’s story; The Colonel’s Way, she has taken her speaking career to a new level. Her goal is to demonstrate the power of action, which has been the driving force throughout American history, with stories of other brave leaders who have contributed so much to our nation’s progress. You can find Heather’s books, including The Pen, The Pearl, The Paragraph and The Colonel’s Way both on her web site: http://www.heather-shreve.com and Amazon. Please contact her there if you would like her to appear as a speaker at your next event or conference.
