Heather was born into a ministry family, so she got to move around a lot as a kid. She spent the majority of her childhood in Canton, OH and St. Petersburg, FL. She graduated from Milligan College in 2003 with a degree in Music Education and later earned her M.A. from East Tennessee State University. After teaching music and art to elementary school kids for around a decade, she joined the staff at Grandview in 2015. Heather and John have been married since 2003 and have two sons, Jude and Jonas. The family likes to play games together, build blanket forts, and explore new places.
