About Heather:

Heather graduated from Central Washington University in 2010 with a Bachelors of Food Science and Nutrition. Following graduation, she attended a Dietetic Internship through Central Washington University where she worked in various hospitals and public health clinics throughout central Washington. After obtaining her RD certification, Heather moved to Las Vegas to gain experience as a dietitian. In Las Vegas, she worked in a critical care hospital and had the opportunity work with and counsel both children and adults on various nutrition subjects. Although she did love the fast-paced hospital setting, she missed having time to spend with patients and decided to make the switch to out-patient counseling. Heather grew up in southwest Washington and greatly missed her family as well as the beautiful landscapes of Washington while in Las Vegas. Heather loves the outdoors and spending time at the beach. Some of her other hobbies include reading, spending time with family, and rooting for all of the Seattle sports teams.
