Together we can create something inspirational

I am not a dreamer. I am a DOER.
Heather S. Binder, Co-founder and Director of Marketing & ConsultingBoots On The Ground Portugal

I realized the importance of finding a fulfilling niche that allowed me to establish relationships and partnerships in Portugal while collaborating with my co-founder in Arizona. Flexibility was essential, given my role as the primary caregiver for my elderly parents and my desire to travel to various locations.

With input from Michael, our co-founder, and drawing upon my experience and expertise, Boots On The Ground Portugal was born.
