heather (Street Articles Author)

Hey there all you finger-frenzy-literary captivators and creators! My name is Heather and I am new to StreetArticles, however, have been writing for pleasure and for pain (attributed to two separate BS degrees) for many years. I am a critical care nurse in a busy intensive care unit, was an active paramedic for 14 years, and have had years of management experience in the pre-hospital arena.

An unfortunate incident involving a stone driveway and nursing clogs, left me reeling for things to do during my days home alone. It also gave me time to reconsider many things in my life from my short term goals of getting back on my feet again to finding ways to motivate and help people that would become a lucrative business in the long run. I've developed some lofty goals and have decided that NOW is the time to take action....no one else is going to achieve them for me.

I have created CelebrateRealWomen.com and am still working on this exciting and rewarding project. CelebrateRealWomen.com is a website for women...a place where a woman can go to find beauty and fashion (for the real sized woman) reviews and tips, personal finance tips, healthy living suggestions, a place where you can meet other women and a way for you to say what you are grateful for. I want women to embrace their bodies, enrich their spirits, and live a fulfilling life.

I love training horses, changing seasons, holding muscle-cramping yoga poses, helping people, playing piano and learning guitar, spending every second I can with my FANTASTIC husband, cooking and eating.

I look forward to contributing my two (or three) cents to this site and welcome feedback. Happy typing everyone!
