Heather O’Brien

Founder and CEO

It didn’t take long for Heather to discover the typical day job wasn’t for her.

Despite a shining career in consulting, and making good money, she had no freedom whilst working 50-100 hours per week.

With a lifestyle dictated by her client’s schedule that made vacation near impossible, Heather decided to start a company of her own, Lifestyle Workweek.

Now she lives in Puerto Rico near the beach, and has the lifestyle she has always dreamed of.
