Heidi has a BSc in Physics and a BSc in Computer Science from Western Washington University, an MSc in Artificial Intelligence from the University of British Columbia, spent 4 years in a Ph.D. in Artificial Intelligence and Quantum Physics at Princeton University. In 2005 she made a radical career movement and started an initiative to reinvent the future of consumerism called Girlapproved. Her mission was to fix the algorithms that run modern economics, consumerism and culture. She left the intellectual and tech community and electing to work exclusively work with young girl artists, scientist, and engineers (ages 15 - 23).
Regarding inclusion and diversity, Heidi is most proud that her experiment was not focused on girls fitting into engineering, economics, design, and marketing but fixing - to the benefit and progress of all.
