How I got my Start
Dr. Heather Townsend wrote the draft for her first book while studying to be an elementary school teacher at Temple University in 1994. Many told her that it was good enough to be actually published. As life would have it, Dr. Townsend had to overcome many hurdles of self-esteem and self-worth before actually following through on this life-long dream. It took 23 years, but it is a part of a journey that she now KNOWS can inspire and empower others!
