Heather is a Technical Recruiter with EdgeLink. She spent the first half of her life in Michigan and the second half in Alabama, so her accent is mix of both places. Heather has been running competitively since the 5th grade and ran Cross Country and Track for the University of Alabama in Huntsville, where she received her degree in Marketing. Heather decided to move to Colorado for the hiking and the adventurous lifestyle it provides.

Getting the Edge on Heather

First job:
I worked at a concession stand for the city of Daphne in Alabama. It was great because I got to eat food all day and hang out with my friends, all while making money.

Favorite quote:
“Tough times don’t last, but tough people do.”

Favorite hobbies:
Hiking and portrait photography. I am excited to be living in Colorado now because it gives me a better chance to do both hobbies at the same time. My goal with photography is to get into doing destination elopements and traveling into the mountains sounds like the perfect way to get that started.

Most desired vacation destination:
Anywhere with tall mountains and a lot of water is a top spot for me, but one thing I really want to do is go somewhere where I can see the Northern Lights.

Something that doesn’t happen to everyone:
Not exactly an event in my life, but I have a twin sister which is kind of cool!

What’s the most beautiful place you’ve ever been?
Vancouver/ Vancouver Island area in BC, Canada. The area is a beautiful combination of ocean, Emerald green lakes, and mountains. Also, in the summertime the sunsets last for hours!
