Heather Gardner is currently the Executive Director of the Central Texas Coalition for Life, an organization dedicated to helping women find loving alternatives to abortion facilities. 

Previously, she served as the Director of Communications for the Brazos Valley Coalition for Life in Bryan, Texas, birth place of 40 Days for Life and where former Planned Parenthood director, Abby Johnson, had her conversion.  

Heather received degrees in Sociology and Vocal Performance at Texas A&M University.  She is currently working toward a certification in Theology of the Body.  Heather is a Relevant Radio Parish Ambassador and regularly volunteers for Meals on Wheels and Mobile Loaves & Fishes.

Over the last decade, Heather has trained over 2,000 volunteers (locally, nationally and internationally) to be Sidewalk Advocates and pregnancy center client advocates.  In 2019 she even had a cameo in the major motion picture, Unplanned, based on Abby Johnson’s book by the same title.  She spends regular time on the sidewalks outside abortion facilities reaching out to women and men and praying for an end to abortion.
