Drawing from her creative experiences growing up in a crafty household, business lessons learned from a brief career in investments, and finally a healthy dose of patience derived from many years working at a psychiatric treatment home, Heather launched Glamajama in 2003. Today, the children’s clothing and accessory line is sold at hundreds of boutiques throughout the states and overseas with exclusive lines being sold in the US at Target, JCPenney, and Sears.

While Heather feels blessed with her role as mom entrepreneur, she feels her greatest role is being a proud mother. As a full time, stay at home mom to her 9 year old son, 7 year old daughter, and 5 year old son she embodies the concept of a next generation mom who utilizes technology to work smarter, not harder and fulfills her personal aspirations of being a traditional mom while satisfying her professional goals of creating a multi-million dollar company.
