Hailing from the faraway lands of Hershey, PA, Heather had decided rather than taking good ol' mom's advice and graduating going straight to the traditional village vocation of a chocolate factory oompa loompa, she had decided to reach for the stars. While working part time at UPS she had attended fulltime at HACC for an accounting degree, yet there still laid an unquenchable burning desire. Without hesitation switching from accounting to business management feeling that this was a step in the right directions for her, but still, she wasn't quite satisfied.
With the support of her dearest friend and mentor, her grandmother Susie, Heather applied to Bradley Academy in hopes of becoming an interior designer. By golly she got in, and after two grueling years of constant classes, projects, work and limited social interaction, in a true overachiever fashion graduating at the tippy top of her class in 2004. She was an interior designer.
Fleeing Central PA in search of new employment endeavors promptly after graduation. Since her escape, she's lived and worked in Baltimore, Maryland, Southern Florida, Ithaca, New York, Austin, Texas then full circle back to Central PA.
Although interior design was her desired field, times were tough, so she took her first professional position as a landscape drafter in Baltimore. She soon found out that her interior design degree went much farther than interior design. Over the years Heather picked up and learned a variety of skills. Heather is proficient in interior, landscape, graphic and website design, social media marketing and architectural and landscape drafting.
However, her brute honesty and unwillingness to be a "yes man" got her on the unemployment line. What a blessing that was. Sick of other people taking credit for her work was so aggravating that she spawned HeadAche Designs. A tribute to the headache she's endured to get where she's at, and a promise that she'll take the headache so you don't have to.
