Your Instructor & Guide

Professor Heather Hornbeak

I am a web designer and Professor at Charleston Southern University.   I have been traveling my entire life both in the US and Internationally.  Our family even lived in a camper van for a year traveling the entire United States!  I have experience planning trips for executives staying in 5-star hotels to backpacking the Appalachia Trail. I also am one of the original founders of "Food For All", a neighborhood program organizing communal meal sharing that has been going for 11 years! What could be better than combining a useful workshop, good food, and learning how to build a website while enjoying the Great Smoky Mountains with family and new friends!
