A Huntsville native, Tabitha Heck graduated from the University of Alabama in Huntsville. At UAH, she earned a degree in sociology and a minor in communication arts.  Once she graduated, she worked as a clerical assistant and receptionist before deciding to be a stay-at-home mother for her three children.

As she homeschooled her kids through their first years of elementary school, she discovered an interest in education. This interest combined with her professional experience when she joined The Learning Team as a receptionist and administrative assistant. 

Additionally, Tabitha Heck is passionate about mission work and counseling. Over the years, this passion has taken her around the world. Her mission trips have taken her to countries like South America and India. During her free time, she continues in her love of helping others by volunteering for both Mary Magdalene Ministries and the Huntsville Pregnancy Resource Center.
