About Heather

All of my life, I knew that what I wanted to do when I "grew up" was take care of people. This is why I chose to major in Social Work. Throughout high school and college, I was a nanny to a range of ages, and in my professional career, served as a Social Worker to middle-school aged children. I believe I have a lot of compassion for those in need of any type of help, and feel that I have the patience it takes. I also have a heart for helping.

Social Worker

Aug 2011 - Jan 2014
Communities In Schools
At Communities In Schools, I served both as a supervisor and a school-based social worker. As a school-based social worker, I worked primarily with Middle School-aged Students with their social, emotional, as well as academic lives. I counseled both individual students as well as groups of students. As a supervisor I worked in the Elementary, Middle School, and High School levels. I supervised the social workers at all levels of education, and was in a more managerial role. I also worked directly with the Principals and Vice Principals of the schools that the social workers were employed at.
