Performing Member

It was the year 1986 in the distant land of Indiana when Heather was born. 28 years later, she grew tired of being freezing cold from November through March, and packed her bags for Greenville. Heather debuted her acting skills as Mouse #3 in her second grade class’s rendition of “Cinderella.”

Her talents quickly moved past Mouse #3 to include such steamy roles as Miss Louisa in her 5th grade play “Miss Louisa and the Outlaws.” By the end of college, she had performed in many school plays, finally joining All for One Productions and having a blast as Mrs. Elton in “Emma” and Miss Minchin in “A Little Princess.”

After moving to Greenville and experiencing hilariously awkward auditions, Heather performed in Shakespeare in the Park’s “The Two Gentlemen of Verona” and took as many Alchemy improv classes as she could. She has been a member of Alchemy since September 2014 and now performs on Alchemy’s Sketch Team, The Robinsons.

As for her education, Heather has some of that. She graduated in professional writing from Taylor University Fort Wayne and, because she wanted to sound smart, got a masters in English from Indiana University. Her “adult jobs” involve teaching composition, literature, and public speaking at Southern Wesleyan University and Spartanburg Community College. Her “fun jobs” include acting as different patients for GHS medical students and publishing books, including “Stockholm Syndrome” and “The Big Red Boat.” You should check them out.

In family events, Heather is married to the best husband in the world and recently spawned the most adorable baby in the world. He is objectively perfect.
