Hello I'm Heather, a nurse that invents things with local people. I'm independent and my company is called Brightness Management. In 2020 I also founded a social enterprise called BreathChamps CIC which helps children and families to learn about child asthma in fun ways.

I like to work in equal partnership with people and communities. I see people as having the solution to many health issues rather than them just having problems.

I don't have 'patients' I have partners - my aim is to help them uncover the hidden wisdom that lies in every community. I work by harnessing the strengths of the community rather than fixing people and meeting needs.

My mission in life is to help create a more equal society.

I like to use creativity in my work, so I wrote stories, poems and make videos. I see visions of a better future and I write about that a lot.

If you’d like to get in touch, feel free to say hello through any of the social links below.
