Watch Hot Flash Havoc- documentary delivering compelling information about menopause that will empower women for the ‘Second Act’ of their lives
About Heidi Houston
Heidi Houston is a force to be reckoned with – that is if you can catch her as she speeds past you on her way to a movie premiere; the closing of a multi-million dollar real estate deal; to a high school hockey game one of her two sons are playing in; or to the other of her son’s home in Los Angeles.
As the Executive Producer (and co producer) of Hot Flash Havoc, a film of menopausal proportions, Heidi was challenged to make an entertaining, engaging and enlightening film about menopause, yet funny while highly personal documentary about menopause, perimenopause and hormone treatments. Having never been someone to let an opportunity go by or any stone unturned Heidi began tossing even the smallest pebbles over to make a feature-length documentary about a subject that no one seems to understand. Her challenge was even bigger as she raised the funds for this film without any pharmaceutical companies and privately financed it through investors who believed in women’s quality of life into their 80’s on onward.
While Heidi enjoys spending time riding her horses near her Aspen, Colorado home, she has never been very good at “holding her horses” and this “no horse held” attitude is noticeable in all aspects of her life including her approach to distributing Hot Flash Havoc.
Armed with the final cut of the film, Heidi now travels the U.S. and Canada working with community organizations to produce “one night only, A Night At the Movies” events to educate women and health care professionals about menopause, perimenopause and other women’s health care issues. Her passion for helping others drives her to share her experiences with other women as they face similar problems, questions, confusions and of course -- hot flashes.
When not traversing North America in support of Hot Flash Havoc, Heidi stays busy as the owner of a high-end real estate company in Aspen, Colorado, Houston Companies, that develops real estate land and buildings, builds luxury homes, sells high-end real estate (holding over 105,000,000 of listings) and rents luxury homes and villas worldwide through Five Star Destinations. She lives with her 17 year old son, Sammy and the occasional visit from her 22 old son Hart Houston who is a film maker living in Los Angeles.
Always on the lookout for “good real estate deal” Heidi can also be found developing new real estate projects where her keen eye for design and love of architecture can be easily recognized. An avid World traveler Heidi enjoys learning about the people and places she represents. That is if you can catch her…
