203: Ex-Nightclub Owner Turned Jungle Animal Rescuer
Featuring Heidi Hansen
Heidi opened a huge nightclub in North Carolina at 24 and ran it successfully for 11 years. The club had it all from a Tiki bar to a mechanical bull; she hosted huge musical acts & raging parties while keeping everything running smoothly. She came to Nicoya on a vacation and immediately felt like she was home. From the monkeys overhead, the waterfalls, the blue butterflies, the weather… before she knew it, she was putting an offer in on a house. She bought the house & five years later, she’s still calling Santa Teresa home. Now, Heidi spends her days rehabilitating animals with Wild Sun Rescue Center in Cabuya & uses her business skills to find ways to make the rescue sustainable. She balances animal rescue will lots of adventure, fun girl time, community & love.
