Although she lived most of her adult years in Chicago, Théa Heying's a Michigan girl.
Divorce introduced her to resale.
The thrill grew on her. It morphed into a game, and then a passion. Now, it's a message: go after what you need: nature has hard-wired you for the hunt. Everybody wins when you shop resale: you, your community, and our earth.
Théa holds a Master's Degree in Clinical Social work from the University of Chicago. She trained in Cognitive Therapy at the Beck Institute in Philadelphia. She taught, supervised, and practiced psychotherapy and worked with clients ranging from the homeless to the famed one-percent.
She lives her husband on the banks of the Muskegon River near Big Rapids, Michigan. She's a member of Artworks Writing Group and has contributed to Michigan History Magazine, Safety and Health, The Mackinac Journal, and newspapers across the State. She rides, swims, skis, serves in her community, and travels. She hopes to return to Paris soon. She reads like a crazy woman.
Her favorite qualification as author of A Wilderness Guide to Resale Chic is the hunter-gatherer skills she acquired in the years she worked in an office located over a Goodwill store. Lunch-hour expeditions yielded jaw-dropping bounty and led her to a full-scale exploration of secondhand opportunities.
Théa delights in beautiful clothes and the love of the resale game. She hopes to share her pleasure with like-minded readers.
