Meet The Nomad Summit Team: Heather Pollock

Heather has been living abroad for the past 10 years, but only as a digital nomad for the past 1.5 years.

She was thrown into this lifestyle unexpectedly after being made redundant from her new job with a start-up in Dubai. She sold everything she owned and left her life Dubai with no plan and a one-way ticket to Bangkok!
