Speaker, Author & Self-Awareness Advocate
After earning her PhD with research designated as “transformative” by the National Science Foundation, Dr. Rebecca Heiss went on to hold multiple appointments in academia, applying her research to solve practical problems in overcoming what she refers to as “biological ghosts” – subconscious behaviors that haunt modern life. She founded Biologic Balance, a stress hormone consultation company and is currently launching a new self-awareness app, called Icueity, to help every individual reach her/his full potential. She has been honored to speak internationally on her work, including a TEDx, and has found her calling in helping others recognize the power of biological applications in the business world. She currently chairs a private advisory board in Greenville, SC to help business leaders empower one another to live happier, more conscious lives while growing their organizations.

Meditating and finding something that gets me out of my comfort zone. Probably dancing.

Watching it change. Greenville is going through a cultural renaissance where old values and norms are being questioned and challenged.
Favorite breakfast meal & restaurant?
Brother Junipers in Memphis, TN makes the best homemade granola with berries and yogurt (with coffee of course!).
What are you doing at:

Nose Dive, Greenville, SC makes a meatless “impossible” burger, with a beautiful kale salad.

Calm – a meditation app, or Blinkist to get the condensed versions of some great reads.
What should everyone try at least once?
Meditation. Don’t try. Just do.

Any new city as long as I’m on foot or bike. I’ll often just start walking or running around random streets and usually find something delightful and new!
