After attending a strategic science secondary college where she finished in the top 2% of the class, Heather attended the rural University of New England to gain a Bachelor of Social Science with Honours. While at this university, Heather marries high school sweetheart Michael Wellington, who is later killed in a shuttle accident. Immediately after the completion of her Bachelor of Social Science with first class honours, Heather applied for the Starfleet Academy and was fortunate enough to pass on her second attempt. Originally, Heather dreamt of becoming a counsellor or a criminologist, but was persuaded by her late husband to pursue a counselling career in Starfleet.
While attending the academy, Heather found friendships in a range of different species. Overall, she found studying at the academy a tedious period in her young life and difficulty approaching her instructors. One positive outcome of attending the academy, Heather made plenty of friends and acquaintances, a task she had often found difficult in her civilian life. She even met a Vulcan and an outgoing Terran pilot who both helped her deal with, and move the from, the lost of her beloved husband. Heather had no clearly define dislike of any subjects, though the subject areas that she scored highly in were the ones she wanted to avoid. These were combat related, particularly zero-gravity, political and engineering related. However, apart from psychology and medicine, Heather also enjoyed her studies in astrophysics and both starship and shuttlecraft operations.
In mid 2377, the USS Galaxy had a number of positions open up in the Helm department for qualified Flight Control Officers. At that time, Heather looked into, and eventually transfered from Counseling to the Helm. Heather still serves as a part-time counselor, taking a few of the group therapy sessions a couple nights a week.
By the end of the year, Heather has proven herself on board the ship, and was promoted to Lieutenant junior grade.
In early 2378, Heather received another promotion to full Lieutenant while serving on board the USS Galaxy.
For recreation, a habit Heather doesn’t easily fall into, she prefers to relax with a good book, a glass of wine and listen to orchestral music, while soaking in a bath of fragrant salts and surrounded by a dozen lit candles and potted burning incense sticks. She also likes partaking in holonovels related to her readings, practice both Aikido, Yoga and Tai Chi, meditation, dancing to a variety of music and occasionally entertaining friends. When it comes to a love life, Heather prefers to distract attention away from herself as she doesn’t want another pain staking ending to love. The only love interest present in her life, is her cat Oceania.
