Connell was born and raised in Massachusetts where she studied screenwriting and theatre arts at Salem State College. In 2001, she relocated to Los Angeles and founded Displaced Yankee Productions, as a platform for raising social awareness and activism through entertainment. After making two short films, Choosing Your Course (2002) and Black and White (2004), Heather produced and directed her first feature, the Award Winning documentary Small Voices: The Stories of Cambodia's Children. As a result of her travels during the production of Small Voices, Heather decided to build a non-profit medical outreach program for disabled children in Cambodia called "Safe Haven". Heather and the other prominent philanthropists and medical professionals are seeking more funding for the outreach program. http://safehavenkhmer.org/
