Get To Know 900lbs: Heather Cowart

Heather Cowart

What do you do at 900lbs?

Project Management

What do you do for fun? 

I love to travel – I’d live in a different country every year if I could. When I’m not chasing around my 2 dogs or binging Netflix, you can find me by the pool with a margarita in hand, looking for the best sushi spot with my friends, or painting.

If you didn’t grow up in Dallas, where did you?

I was born in Lewisville but grew up in North Austin.

What vacation desination is #1 on your list?

Italy! I had to cancel a month long trip when COVID hit.

Favorite song in your Spotify playlist right now?

“Love Grows Where my Rosemary Goes” by Edison Lighthouse & “Lovely Day” by Bill Withers

What’s the best advice you’ve ever heard?

There’s really only 2 choices in life; to act upon something or not and regardless of your decision, you have to accept the consequences. Everything becomes much more simple from that perspective.

If you could choose a superpower, what would it be?

Teleportation – I could have waffles in Belgium for breakfast, take an afternoon swim in Costa Rica, and pop over to Japan for a sushi dinner.

Do you have a hidden talent?

I used to be a horse wrangler! And I’m pretty artistic – so I oil paint, sculpt, weld, and draw.

What are your top five?

(1) Princess Bride
(2) Secretariat
(3) National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation (it’s a tradition)
(4) Pride & Prejudice
(5) Harry Potter
