Church Engagement Program Leader
In 2012, Heather was attending Liberty University Online when she became aware of the issues of domestic sex trafficking through a research assignment. The journey from awareness to action was a short hop, fueled by a strong desire to help put an end to this form of modern day slavery. While partnering with her church’s women’s ministry leader to help educate the congregation about this issue, they were eventually led to Restoration One Ninety-Nine (R1:99) in Washington, DC. Having completed R1:99’s Ambassadors of Restoration Program (ARP), Heather is continuing her involvement by leading the Church Engagement Program. She is a member of Capital Baptist Church, and her God-given passion is to promote the human rights of women and children.
In her professional life, Heather is a Certified Business Continuity Planner and a member of Fairfax County’s Community Emergency Response Team (CERT). Heather resides in Annandale with her husband and two daughters, and their Morkie pup, “Pebbles.”
