A Pendleton county native, Heather has returned home to the beautiful mountains to join Future Generations University as Administrative Associate to the Appalachian team. She is a graduate of Marshall University where she studied Psychology and spent over a decade educating, caring for, and counseling children in Kanawha county. She has also enjoyed working with several nonprofit organizations over the years, both as a volunteer and employee, and in 2017 had the good fortune to join West Virginia Community Development Hub. It was there she developed a passion for positive transformation in our local communities by supporting and connecting residents with tools, training and resources, and building leadership for sustainable growth.
During the warmer months, Heather spends most of her free time outdoors – gardening, hiking, camping, and exploring the forest for treasures with her dog, Tucker. Once the temperature drops, you’ll find her inside – making jewelry, sewing, baking, collecting even more hobbies, or planning summer adventures.
