Heather’s past fundraising has included a variety of organizations including the Old State House in Boston, Rotary International, and the United of Way of Metro Chicago. Heather has attributed her choice to support organizations that are making an impact on their communities and the world to her service as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Bulgaria, where she taught English as a second language and supported several student projects, including a Danube River pollutant research project by High School Students for which she raised funds from USAID.
