Heather Meyer Boothby

Cedar Rapids Public Library, IA

My name is Heather Meyer Boothby and I am from the bioregion known as the Midwest.  My parents were respectively from Illinois and Nebraska and met in Milwaukee where I was born.  Their family before that was from Missouri and Iowa so I’m at least three generations in.  This is important when I think about serving my community, and where my heart is.  I believe in self-less service, art, and the ability to seek out information in order to understand life.  My husband and I have three kids: one in Japan in the Navy, one in high school, and one in grade school.  We also have two dogs and two cats, so the inn is definitely full.  I love slow fashion, growing my own food, and punk rock music.
