Heidi grew up in a small town in central Minnesota. She graduated from the College of St. Scholastica, in Duluth, Minnesota, with a Bachelor's in Social Work. After graduation, not really knowing how she wanted to help people, she set out on an adventure to the Grand Tetons in Jackson Hole, WY. Living in new environment changed her life and she fully embraced the mountains and the West.
She coincidentally stumbled upon HeadCount's web page while searching for ways to combine her love for activism and music. While the closest place to volunteer for a show is 5 hours away, she scooped up the opportunity to get involved via the net. She cares passionately about the food industry, local food, healthy living, and the environment so it only seemed logical to get in contact with HeadCount. In her free time she enjoys hiking, camping, backpacking, attending music shows (and dancing), traveling, learning and making her contribution to saving the planet.
