Before starting her journey as an author, Heather Crosby passed through a health issue, due to that she had to face crippling stomach pain, vomiting, fevers, and bloating. During that time she was in her 20s and used to live in Chicago.
After the stomach pain was followed by more serious health issues, once her doctor told that she had to take a pill every day for the rest of her life. Besides, one of her friends introduced her how tasty vegetables could be as well as beneficial for her health. So she started incorporating more vegetables and eventually gave up animals products in her diet.
Further, Crosby got an inspiration by the use of vegetables and started using a URL. She did so to spread the knowledge of her recipe all over the world through, “YumUniverse.com”
Moreover, she regularly uploads the latest updates of her recipes through videos, a blog, also provides guidelines and tips for a plant-based lifestyle. After two years, she became a nutritional coach, certified through the "T.Colin Campbell Foundation".
After achieving the certificate, Crosby started thinking that it would be better if she serves people with her health and wellness skills but instead of that, she continued with the art and science of creating recipes.
And by the fall of 2014, Crosby came out with her first cookbook, “YumUniverse: Infinite Possibilities for a Gluten-Free, Plant-Powerful, Whole-Food Lifestyle”.
Recently, Crosby released her second book “YumUniverse Pantry to Plate: Improvise Meals You Love—from what You Have!”. Apart from that, she is also active on social networking sites such as Instagram, Snapchat, Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, and Pinterest.
But when it comes to her personal life, Crosby is quite confidential. She prefers to keep her personal matters undisclosed to the media. As well as till now there is no rumors and news related to her affairs, boyfriend, spouse or marital life.
Crosby as an author might earn a good income. Similarly, she makes money through her vlogs and Youtube channel as well. However, her exact figure of net worth is yet to disclose and is under review.
