Heather Robinson-Ross has become an accomplished screenwriter, producer, author and philanthropist. After graduating high school she went to work for America Online where she met actress and writer Carrie Fisher in an online chat room. Carrie convinced Heather to write a screenplay based on her life as a teenager growing up with a single mother. She eventually sold her first script titled, “The Perfect Man” to Universal Pictures for a world-wide release that starred
Hilary Duff, Heather Locklear and Chris Noth.
In 2014, Heather partnered with the Alzheimer’s Association in Denver, Colorado to fund the SPARK! Program in memory of her Grandmother, Trudy Livesay. SPARK! joins forces with various museums and community partners while providing social engagement opportunities for people with early memory loss. This program helps folks with mild cognitive loss to learn something new, engage in something creative, get some physical activity, or discover resources and learn strategies for living with memory loss.
In December of 2018, Heather was elected to serve on the Board of the National Foundation to End Child Abuse and Neglect or EndCAN. As a caregiver to her husband, Lt. Colonel Gary Ross who had recently been diagnosed with a rare form of Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma called Waldenstrom's disease, Heather quickly realized she was unable to dedicate the time and effort that the organization deserved. The co-founder of the organization, Lori Poland, and Heather have since joined forces to develop a screenplay based on Lori's soon-to-be published memoir. Heather has optioned the film rights to Lori's story through her production company, Feisty Fox Productions.
EndCAN works to change the way child abuse and neglect is addressed by focusing on the health, mental health and public health issues of abuse.
As a military spouse, Heather is honored to have been selected to volunteer her time assisting an incredible production team in writing and producing a National Suicide Awareness campaign for the United States Army. More on this will be released in 2020.
