Happiness Is A Choice-Episode 22

Posted on: September 1, 2010

Episode 22 features Heather Baier, who hails from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Heather is an apprentice meteorological technician. She explains precisely what this is, after it is evident pretty quickly that I have no idea!

I first met Heather through the Twitter community. We periodically ran into each other on-line, and chatted together in a couple of group Skype calls. We eventually became Face book friends too. But we didn’t really get to know each other until we did this podcast episode.

Listen is as we chat about Heather’s work in a non-traditional career path, as well as her prior military experience. She has always been interested in electronics and science, and a secret passion for FLYING.

We also chat about the importance of her close-knit family, life lessons she has learned, and how positive attitude and choosing happiness has indelibly shaped her life.

You can find out more about Heather by reading her fantastic blog, The Adventures of an Apprentice Met Tech Ti-ger. Here, she talks about her work, stuttering acceptance and how everything all fits together.

Musical credit for the clip “Silver Shine” goes to Dano Songs, which is podcast safe music.

Feel free to leave comments or questions for Heather. She’d love to hear your feedback. I would too.

Amazing instalment again. And amazing Heather. I’m totally impressed by her positive attitude, and her calm when she stutters. I wonder if the great wilderness of the North has a soothing effect.
And fantastic blog. This Ti-ger in the pics has seen more amazing things than many humans 😉 Definitely one of the most original stuttering blogs on the web. It’s almost art.

Also, Pam, congratulations for your capacity to detect catch lines in real time 😉

I too thought this was an amazing episode. As Burt above says, Heather is very calm and matter-of-fact. She does the same thing she talk about, so its no wonder her stuttering has not caused any issues for her at work.
Great stuff. Thanks so much for sharing your story.

Great chat! Heather’s enthusiasm and passion for her work and the arctic is infectious. Totally booking my plane tickets 🙂
