She received a Bachelor degree in Biology from Rhodes College in Memphis, Tennessee and went on to complete a Bachelor of Science in Nursing at the University of Memphis. Following graduation, she was Level 3 Nursery and Labor and Delivery Nurse at Methodist Germantown in Memphis where she managed all levels of risk pregnancies and provided intrapartum, postpartum, antepartum, newborn, and postoperative gynecological care to women of all age groups.
Heather married George Talbot whose position as the Political Editor of the Mobile Press Register moved them to Fairhope. Heather began working in the Birth Center at Thomas Hospital in 2001 and while working, completed a Masters Degree in Nursing Science at the University of South Alabama in 2005 to become a Nurse Practitioner. Heather completed her Ob/Gyn practicum with Dr. Shoemaker and had worked closely with him as a nurse in the Birth Center, so her coming into practice with him was a natural progression. Heather’s extensive experience as a Birth Center Nurse gives her a extraordinarily comprehensive approach to pregnancy, childbirth, and infant care which shows in her time and thoughtfulness with her patients. Heather is also certified by the American Society for Colposcopy and Cervical Pathology making her cutting edge in the management of the pap and annual exam.
