She was a paralegal with the Miller Law Group.
Heather Heyer was a Greene County, Virginia native and an American graduate of William Monroe High School. She was part of the 2003 graduating class. 
Ms. Heyer lived alone with her Chihuahua, Violet, who was named after her favorite color.
Marissa Blair, a friend of Heather Heyer who was at the incident, said, “We were just marching around, spreading love —and then the accident happened.
In a split second, you see a car, and you see bodies flying.”
Heyer's mom, Susan Bro, refused a phone call from President Donald Trump offering his condolences. Bro said: “I’m not talking to the President now. I’m sorry. After what he said about my child—and it’s not that I saw somebody else’s tweets about him. I saw an actual clip of him at a press conference equating the protesters like Ms. Heyer with the KKK and the white supremacists.”
