Heather is proud to call Texas home! She was born in Dallas and now lives in Uptown with her husband, Brian who is a Mortgage Banker for Homebridge Financial. Growing up, Heather always had a strong passion for working with children and running a well organized classroom. After graduating from Texas State University with her Bachelor’s degree in Education and certified to teach Early childhood up to 6th grade, she landed her first teaching job in Mesquite ISD as a Second Grade Teacher.
She was a classroom teacher for 18 years where so also taught 4th, 5th, and 6th grade students. She spent two years as an instructional specialist aiding teacher’s in kinder through 6th grade where her organization skills were really put to use.
While Heather had a strong passion for teaching, she also enjoyed using organizational strategies when setting up her classroom each fall in order to create an environment that was calm, welcoming, and structured for all types of learners. As Heather modeled her organizational skills with her students on a daily basis, her students began to recreate organizational strategies with their journals, station work, and supplies throughout the year. She helped her co-workers stay organized as well with textbook inventory checklists, student data files, lead teacher responsibilities, and sorting out classroom materials. Heather believes that part of her success as a teacher is due to her organization and the structured environment she created for her students each year.
Not only was Heather’s classroom organized, but she also knows that staying organized at home is key to running an operative home. Organization has helped her personally and mentally. She loves making sure all closets, cabinets, drawers and rooms are all in an organized – functional fashion at all times.
After 18 years of teaching, Heather believed it was time to pursue other passions in her life outside of education. Through a close friend and client of her Health Coaching business, Heather came across Sorted Out, and instantly it sparked her interest into the world of helping others see the benefit of having an organized lifestyle. Being a part of Sorted Out gives Heather the opportunity to use her talent of building strong relationships with both the clients and organizers in order to guide them in finding the perfect organizing service that will lead to a more functional lifestyle for them and their whole family.
