Co-founder and CEO of the Realm of Caring Foundation
Heather Jackson is the co-founder and CEO of the Realm of Caring Foundation, an internationally acclaimed non-profit primarily serving families who are dealing with life-limiting and chronic health conditions. The number of people her organization has served has grown 7000% since 2013. Her WHY is her family. After her youngest son Zaki journeyed from hospice to health using cannabis, she made it her mission to help families who find themselves in the same position her family was in. Her mantras are to end the day with no potential left in it and to smile until your face hurts. Her humor, social enterprising ethics, and vision have paved the way for many to improve their quality of life. Heather’s work has been featured on Dateline, New York Times, National Geographic, TIME, Good Housekeeping, 60 Minutes Australia, CNN with Sanjay Gupta and more.
