Heather spends a lot of time listening to audio books. She listens mostly to mysteries, with her favorite being the Women's Club series by James Patterson. She loves to travel. She went to London last year and it was amazing. She loves going to shows in Chicago and to see her son, who is a musical theater major, in the shows he's in. She just saw Cats and really enjoyed it! A favorite family vacation was swimming with dolphins in Cozumel. Heather has two sons: Bryan (28), a Technical Specialist with a local company, and Justin (19), a sophomore at Columbia College, Chicago.

Heather facilitates events for international students, spouses, and scholars. She leads an amazing group of undergrad and grad students called International Ambassadors, who serve as peer mentors for new international students and help with events throughout the year. She's worked at Notre Dame International / ISSA for over 6 years. She has an Associates degree in Broadcasting from Vincennes University.
