About Heather Small, PMHNP

Heather is from Eastern North Carolina and started her career as a police officer before she changed careers and went to school to be a registered nurse.  She also supervised other nurses and acted as a charge nurse. Heather also received a business degree in healthcare administration pursuing leadership and administrative roles from Mount Olive College but realized quickly that her path was going to take a different route.
