About Attorney Sekella
Heather enjoys spending time with her family and summers are especially fun with swimming, boating and water skiing. It is important to Heather and her family to contribute to community events and fundraisers. Heather and her family support special causes like the fight for diabetes and alzheimers research as well as making contributions to disaster relief, St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital, Boston Children’s Hospital, Salvation Army and local food banks, local police and fire and the ASPCA. Heather and her family are especially fond of dogs - the red and black Doberman Pinscher is a family favorite for over 20 years. Her black male, Gunther is very loveable, yes loveable! Attorney Sekella also encourages her daughters' various interests and strengths in academics like English and science, as well as extracurricular activities and sports. Her husband thinks she lives vicariously through their daughters because she can't dance, can't sing and can't jump. Lucky for you she hasn’t quit her day job!
