Heather L. Wessel
Heather Wessel was born and raised in Chicago. As an adult she lived and adventured all over California before moving to the east coast in 2014.
Heather practiced occupational therapy for fourteen years and in 2015 decided to make a change. She attended Northern Virginia Community College and successfully completed her Paralegal Studies degree in December 2017. In her last semester, she accepted an opportunity for an internship with Weiner, Spivey & Miller, followed by an offer to stay on in a part-time position. She has enjoyed her new career thus far.
A long-distance runner, Heather has completed two full marathons, over twenty half marathons, and eleven 200-mile overnight team relay races. She has also participated in three significant fundraising events, walking sixty miles in three days to fight breast cancer, during one of which she met her husband, Michael.
