Heather Lewis, MD, MPH, MS or "Doc Heather" as she is fondly called in the community, grew up in the DMV metropolitan area, closest to the National Harbor in Southern Maryland. Starting her career as a lifetime learner, she has achieved four advanced degrees from Hampton University, Indiana University, Uniformed Services University, and her most celebrated, The Ohio State University. She has received one project management professional certification from Syracuse University.

It is an honor for her to be known as a U.S. Department of Navy Veteran because she not only served onboard ship during combat tours at sea but also wore the Marine Corps uniform as a Medical Officer caring for Sailors & Marines around the world. She joins the Dog Tag Fellowship Program based on a referral from her alumni membership of the Wounded Warrior Project. Graduating from the fellowship allowed her to solidify her business acumen, confirm her business model and successfully launch with a client waitlist her business “Doc Heather Knows,” a private concierge medical commonwealth for the entrepreneurial woman.

Loving all things chocolate and only able to pick one thing in the Dog Tag bakery, she is sticking with her favorite item, fudge brownies!
