Heather K. Jacobsen

memoir, poetry, nonfiction

I write memoir, poetry and nonfiction.

My work has been featured on PBSNewsHour Online, Medium and the National Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics’ Food & Nutrition Magazine.

My research and writing has also contributed to articles on the online magazine, Stuffed Pepper, and reports that advised Congress when I worked at the US National Academy of Sciences. I have an MSc from the University of Kent at Canterbury, and a BA from UVa.

I am a seeker of truth and a chaser of light, and I love to find order in chaos. I was also once ordained as a Buddhist nun.

I live in Connecticut with my husband, son and daughter (and three cats).
