Heather was born and raised in the United States. After 10 years in England, she just spent a year in Colombia. (Her father is from Bogotá, Colombia.) She’s now based in Gayton-le-Marsh, Lincolnshire, England.
She has worked with hospice and AIDS organizations. She has a master’s degree in economics, which she taught in New York and England. Most recently, she worked as a project coordinator, supporting universities in the UK to embed sustainability in the curriculum.
She founded Sustainable Thornbury, a Transition initiative seeking to create a resilient community in the face of climate change and oil depletion. She has led work on middle-class liberation, parents’ liberation, and women’s liberation.
Realizing that the climate change threat is large enough to warrant her full professional attention, she invited people to participate in training around how to face the reality of climate change, which is happening now, and take appropriate action from a place of complete empowerment. This is the basis of keduzi, her non-profit organisation based in England and Colombia.
