Originally from Southern California, then living in Pagosa Springs, CO, Heather has been at ARE since 2006. She loves the way ARE is more like a family than a school, stating “we love, respect, and care for each other”. Plus, she adds “we have the coolest students and families ever!” Outside of teaching Heather loves hiking 14ers, wake boarding, playing soccer, snowshoeing, snowboarding, volunteering and spending time with her family and friends. One fun fact about Heather is that she has hiked more than 26 of Colorado's 54 14ers and has done all of these while being one of the most clumsy people in the world.
