Charity Director- slave Heather (she/her)
“We choose: To live by choice, not by chance. To be motivated, not manipulated. To be useful, not used. To make changes, not excuses. To excel, not compete. We choose self-esteem, not self-pity. We choose to listen to our inner voices, not the random opinion of others. We choose to be US.”
First and foremost, slave Heather is Master David’s slave. He is her rock and keeps her centered. She looks to Him for direction and support. The amount of knowledge and passion He possesses for the path He has chosen to walk is evident in all that He does each and every day. She is able to flourish because He guides her with understanding and patience. When she falters, He corrects her and lifts her up to try again. He holds her at high standards because He believes in her potential. This pushes her to try harder and to focus her stubbornness towards pleasing Him, serving her community with honor and integrity. She wakes up each day with a desire to satisfy Him more completely than she did the day before.
She is a woman of leather. She says this knowing that she is still at the beginning of her journey. The foundation of her beliefs embrace the core of the leather way of life. It promotes acceptance, belonging, compassion, support, and service. Most importantly it is FAMILY. You could ask 100 different people what living leather means to them, and you would probably get 100 variations, but if you looked deeper you would most likely see that passion is the center of it. Her chosen family has grown exponentially, and she is blessed to be a part of it. She hopes to make her Master and family proud of the walk she takes. She is confident that her path is one of service and education.
She strives to continue growing so that she may share her experiences along her journey to support and encourage those she comes in contact with. It is important to make sure she honors those who have created a place she can belong, to love the family that has embraced her and to share who she is with future generations. She works very hard at not allowing other people’s behaviors and attitudes effect hers. It is not always easy since she tends to be very protective of those she chooses to surround herself with. She has zero tolerance for those who exist only to lie, manipulate, hurt, and look down at others. She feels it is our responsibility to lift one another up, not tear them down. Her Master allows her to “Tigger” in social situations when appropriate because He is confident that she will never intentionally say or do anything that would be harmful to their family. He appreciates her smile and ease at which people approach her for help.
She is a HUGE advocate of safety and responsibility, so it is important to be available to those on both sides of the slash. She loves to feed people mind body and soul, so you most likely find her cooking more often than not. Coffee flows through her veins and she can always be bribed with more. She loves reading, writing, gardening, and learning. Hugs are always welcome. So please make sure to say hi and introduce yourself when you can catch her standing still.

She quickly experienced sub frenzy and became a voracious study of both the mental and physical sides of the D/s lifestyle. Her curiosities have led to her own self-discovery as a bottom leaning Switch with sadomasochistic tendencies.
