Area of Expertise
Rebecca knows fear. As a biologist and stress expert, Dr. Rebecca Heiss is dedicated to helping us become self-aware and overcome our instinctual limitations – the ancient, often subconscious fears that hold us back from our optimal performance and our happiest lives. Her research has been designated “transformative” by the National Science Foundation and it is waking up audiences around the world.
As an author (Instinct, April 2021), founder and CEO of the 360-review mobile application, Icueity, and highly sought-after professional speaker, Rebecca has found her calling in helping others recognize the power of biological applications in their lives. A former educator, Dr. Heiss spent much of her earlier career in the classroom at both the high school and college levels and was recruited to be a founding member of an innovative charter school with a focus on entrepreneurial thinking and impact-based learning.
Rebecca has been honored to speak internationally on her work, including multiple TEDx talks. Her “fear(less)” message inspires hope and actionable insights to train our brains to work for us, rather than against us in times of uncertainty. She lives in South Carolina with her spoiled rotten dog named Guinness, and every day tries to live her life motto: “spread happy.”
