ACQUIRED SAVANT
WITH SYNESTHESIA

A RARE FEW IN THE WORLD TODAY

"Thompson is an 'acquired savant,' whose remarkable experience can help shed light on the roots of human creativity," explains Darold Treffert, Wisconsin psychiatrist and worldwide savant expert. "These are ordinary people who have a head injury — typically on the left side of the brain — or stroke, or some other central nervous system incident - and, all of a sudden, they have musical or artistic abilities, sometimes at the prodigious level." Full Article about Heather Thompson in Nautilus 2016.
Note: Dr. Darold Treffert was the content expert on 1989’s Rain Man, author of Island of Genius, and founder of the Treffert Center.

ABOUT

I thrive in the crucible of "it's never been done before." My multihyphenate pursuits span theology, entrepreneurship, AI, healthcare, technology, art, community policing, DEI, rare disease and more.

 

They say I am a polymath; I believe in following my innate curiosity with humility and a genuine desire to be of service. While I am not one for labels, it is helpful to know that I am a diagnosed Acquired Savant Artist with synesthesia, as it allows me to better understand the context for the way my brain operates in the wake of the accident that changed my life. 

 

This I know for sure: I see things in ways few others can. I bring rare insight into disruptive innovation, including the emergence of healthcare artificial intelligence (#HealthcareAI).

With nearly 25 years as a healthcare futurist, keynote speaker, award-winning artist, rare disease advocate, published writer, and C-suite strategist, I possess a track record of excellence combined with the quiet
knowledge of just how much I have yet to learn.

LET'S TALK 

AWARD WINNING ARTIST

Maja Hansen, Patron, Owner of "Warrior Chief" (Right) Acrylic on Canvas 2012

"Heather’s art is deeply personal and meaningful, both to her and to those who are fortunate enough to appreciate it. While visually stunning, it is even more emotionally moving when you learn the unique story behind how each piece evolved. I select each piece not just by how it appears, but also by what it means, and how that makes me feel. I never tire of looking at any of the multiple pieces in my home, and seeing something new or special emerge."
