Heather loved her successful career in the Bay Area — until she didn’t. Between 2020 and the wildfires, she found herself feeling trapped. So she found an old army van/box truck and converted it into her home on wheels with her dad’s help.

She intentionally left the exterior simple and “masculine” to offer her protection as she travels alone. But the inside is anything but boring! The clean and “girly” finishes inside create a warm and inviting space for her to work as a leadership coach. Enjoy her tour and her tips for staying safe on the road as a solo female traveler.
