About me

Occupation Author, Inspirational Speaker, Health and Wellness Coach, Adventurer.

Introduction Author of the motivating and inspiring book entitled "Dream it. See it. Be it. ~ Discovering your potential at the end of your comfort zone." My book will encourage you to believe in yourself, go for your dreams and do whatever it takes. Available on Amazon and www.heatherhowells.com. Originally from South Africa, I now live on the beautiful island of Oahu, Hawaii. I discovered running at the age of 40 and have participated in many half marathons, marathons and ultra marathons including a 250km/155mile Extreme marathon in October 2010. I obtained my education as a Registered Nurse, Midwife and Psychiatric Nurse in South Africa, as well as Reflexology and a diploma in Fitness and Nutrition. I studied modern dancing and played tenor saxophone with a band 'The Dynamics' in Cape Town in 1996-1997. My most recent accomplishment in endurance activities was hiking the Pacific Crest Trail from Mexico to Canada solo in 2014 and El Camino del Norte and Finisterra in 2016 across the entire length of northern Spain.
