Lifestyle Design

How can I win at life, work, and play? Designing an adventurous lifestyle doesn’t have to be hard. It requires a bit of unlearning and mindset awareness combined with practicing different muscles and taking small steps forward to create habits that support being present in your life and embracing the opportunities in front of us.

Meet Heidi

Heidi never wanted to choose between her role as a mom, her professional career, and her adventurous lifestyle…so she didn’t. She rewrote the rules to design a life of adventure while still being a working mom. Heidi is often described as a healthy disruptor and unshakeable optimist, her passion lies in challenging the status quo and delivering experiences. With a background transcending the sectors of education, health care, nonprofits, research, philanthropy, and business with superpowers in connecting dots, designing systems, and public speaking. She continually embraces each role with a lens of empathy, trust and curiosity.


She has combined all these skills and experiences into her most treasured role as an adventurous mom. Today she and her husband live in Northeast Wisconsin with 3 children. The majority of their time is spent playing outside, remodeling their fourth generation farm house, mastering travel rewards and untourism while creating connections with people around the world.  Her podcast Ordinary Sherpa inspires families to connect through simple and authentic adventures.
