Hello, my name is Heather Refvem and I have always been animated. My dad would do impressions of me when I was little. When I played “Mama Rose” in high school, my stand out number was “Mr. Goldstone” over “Everything’s Coming Up Roses.”
I grew up in Sammamish, Washington, a suburb 20 miles east of Seattle. I earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Music Theatre from The College of Santa Fe, now Santa Fe University of Art and Design. After graduation, I moved to New York City with stars in my eyes.
I spent seven years in New York pursuing my dream of being an actor as well as working as a culinary tour guide for Foods of New York Tours. I truly embraced my time in New York but all along, my heart was home in the Northwest, so in May of 2014 I made the move back to Seattle.
Since returning home, I have appeared in productions at Seattle Children’s Theatre, Seattle Musical Theatre, SecondStory Repertory and Cafe Nordo. I am represented for Film, Corporate Video, Commercials, Voice-Over and Multimedia work by Big Fish NW Talent. I couldn’t be happier to be back in the Northwest and am proud to be a member of Seattle’s thriving arts community. When not on stage, I can be found giving tours of Pike Place Market with Savor Seattle Food Tours or enjoying a glass of Washington State wine…
