Rebecca S. Heiss Ph.D.

After earning her PhD with research designated as “transformative” by the National Science Foundation, Dr. Rebecca Heiss went on to hold multiple appointments in academia, applying her research to solve practical problems in overcoming what she refers to as “biological ghosts” - subconscious behaviors that haunt modern life. She is currently launching a new self-awareness, 360-review app, called Icueity (www.icueity.com), to help every individual reach her/his full potential and finishing her new book, Instinct, due to be published in March 2021. She has been honored to speak internationally on her work, including multiple TEDx talks, and has found her calling in helping others recognize the power of biological applications in their lives. She is a full-time speaker and lives in South Carolina with her spoiled rotten dog named Guinness. Every day she tries to live her life motto: “spread happy.”
