Heather grew up in the suburbs of St. Louis, Missouri, before moving to Denver, Colorado to attend the University of Denver. At the University of Denver she majored in English, with minors in history and French, and had an active leadership role in her sorority, Alpha Gamma Delta. She then moved to Tallahassee to attend the Florida State University College of Law. She was a Notes and Comments Editor of the Florida State University Law Review and was awarded the Distinguished Pro Bono Service Award for exceeding pro bono graduation requirements.
Heather joined our firm after working two legislative sessions with the Florida Senate where she drafted legislation relating to criminal law and child welfare. She enjoyed being part of the legislative process, but she has always wanted to use her law degree to help people and has welcomed the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of veterans with her colleagues at Hill & Ponton.
