Sim State University. She is a fairly new student, with 55 hours left in her first semester. Her roommates are Brittany Upsnott and Tiffany Sampson. She could probably have any man she wanted and has crushes on Martin Ruben and Castor Nova, though she's currently more interested in Martin, the nerd on campus. Heather's a party girl who lives by her words "So many parties, so little time".
At the start, Heather does not have a good relationship with either of her roommates. Reasons for this are left to the imagination of the player. Heather is seen as careless, selfish and playful. She doesn't care how many guys' feelings she could hurt, as long as she gets the guy she wants. She is also disliked by Allegra Gorey, who thinks she could hurt people's feelings more than Brittany. Heather's reasons for going to college are not to study, but to party and grab as many boys as she can. She regards this as a game, of which Tiffany disapproves.
If Nightlife is installed, she will usually have a poor chemistry with her friend Kevin Beare. Her biography has a somewhat similar layout to Don Lothario in Pleasantview. Like several other Sims from Sim State University, Heather starts off with no gender preference.
