How They Met
Randy & Heather first met at Kalamazoo Loaves & Fishes (KLF) in Kalamazoo, Michigan. Randy was an employee there and Heather a volunteer. Eventually, Heather began her employment with KLF and, during a co-worker's going-away party, Randy and Heather connected, nearly a year after they first met, during which time there was minimal and work-related-only contact between them. Over the following nine or so months, they kept their relationship from co-workers until they both left KLF for relocation to Chicago.
In their four years together, Randy started a business, Heather achieved her dream of living in Chicago, Randy secured a great job in the city and Heather has returned to school. They credit their successes during this time period to their love and support of each other. They live in Chicago with their two dogs (lab mixes) and their cat.
