Chef Heather Hessler: Born and raised in New Jersey, Heather's dad had her up on a surfboard since she was three years old. Her passion for the ocean started then. She fell in love with the Virgin Islands after traveling there at a young age. After traveling and exploring the Caribbean, Heather took home to the Island of St. Thomas where she attended the University of the Virgin Islands. She has been in and around the Virgin Islands and other Caribbean islands for over 17 years. As much as Heather loves being in or around the ocean she has spent equal time in the kitchen. She started working in the restaurant/hospitality business at 16. She has been mentored by some of the best local St. Thomas chefs, where she also became a sought after mixologist creating inspired libations in some of the island's top martini bars. Heather specializes in preparing healthy, flavorful well-balanced meals that are also aesthetically pleasing. She communicates with her guests pre-charter to tailor a menu to suit any dietary restrictions or preferences. She is well versed in vegetarian/pescatarian/vegan/gluten free diets. Heather draws particular inspiration from Latin, Caribbean and Asian cuisine influences.
