They are actively involved in their community, dog rescue, and exploring our great city. Heather is an avid reader and math lover; she appreciates how crucial literacy in all forms is to personal development and having a positive role in an equitable society.

Heather has an undergraduate degree in health sciences, a graduate degree in interdisciplinary studies, and a graduate certificate in dispute resolution. Her prior school roles have provided her with in-depth experiences in social-emotional learning, child brain development, and restorative practices. She is an ongoing learner of anti-bias and anti-racism within and out of the classroom.
