After a yearlong hiatus to cycle through North and South America, Heather is rejoining Conservation Northwest as the Special Events and Public Engagement Coordinator. Originally from Wisconsin, Heather didn’t find her passion for the forests and mountains until she spent five years abroad in Ecuador, where she loved living in the Andes Mountains and exploring the Amazon Rainforest. Drawn to the Northwest’s geography, Heather has enjoyed spending the past four years settling into the PNW lifestyle and exploring the region’s public lands and vibrant communities. With a background in socio-environmental issues, an affinity for the non-profit world, and experience in field organizing and advocacy work, Heather is eager to contribute her energy and passion to further Conservation Northwest’s mission and public engagement. When not working to save Pachamama (Mother Earth), she can be found wandering the Northwest’s many mountain trails, finding new cycling routes, and seeking out Seattle’s best ice cream and sour beer.
