Heather Stone founded Stone Insurance in 2003, delivering insurance options that are tailored to each individual's needs. That same spirit of personalized care led to her becoming a special needs advocate and establishing Invisible Parent as a valued resource.
Heather's passion for making health insurance both simple and understandable for all was ignited when her disabled son developed health problems at a young age. That drove her to focus on finding affordable healthcare solutions for all, whether through private insurers or public options such as Medicare and the Health Insurance Marketplace.
Over the years, Heather has fostered special needs children and discovered a void when it comes to their insurance and care options. Drawing on her presentation skills, humour, and subject matter expertise, she's a tireless advocate for differently abled children -- including those with autism.
Her list of accolades runs long. Highlights include being a member of the Florida Legislative team for national health care, acting as a Certified Special Needs consultant, leading parent support groups, and a role as a contributor for both Kiplinger's financial magazine and Health Care News. In addition, Heather teamed with the city to start special needs school break camps for kids in middle school and high school, providing them with a safe place to learn and play.
Heather doesn't define herself by her career, though. A loving wife and doting mother of five, she enjoys a variety of outside activities such as travelling and trying the latest in fine dining. Above all, though, her passion for leading political change that benefits people with disabilities and supports -- and recognizes -- the role that parents and caregivers play.
