About Rebecca

Rebecca_Heisman_03Rebecca Heisman (née Deatsman) writes about wildlife and the environment from her home in Walla Walla, Washington. See the Writing page on this website to read her articles and stories.

Originally from Ohio, Rebecca worked in both wildlife biology and environmental education before taking up writing full time, with jobs that took her to the barrier islands of Georgia, Wisconsin’s North Woods, and the Australian Outback. She has a bachelor’s degree in zoology and environmental studies from Ohio Wesleyan University and a master’s degree in environmental education from the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point. When she isn’t writing, she can often be found gardening, playing the trombone, reading Marvel comics, or taking way too many photos of her cat.
