Heather has had the privilege of serving in the role of Career Development Facilitator and working with our dynamic, creative team of career professionals at the Office of Career Services since August 2012. Before coming to UNM, she worked at a local high school where she discovered her passion for working with young adults as they embark on their college careers and begin to explore their future career options. Heather has a Master’s degree in Counseling from UNM and is a licensed mental health counselor and certified career counselor. Heather is the Career Services liaison to the College of Arts & Sciences, including Health Sciences, and to University College, including the BALA/BIS programs and undecided students. She also is the liaison to UNM’s Accessibility Resource Center (ARC) and the Veteran and Military Resource Center (VMRC) and is the campus coordinator for the Workforce Recruitment Program (WRP), a federal program that helps students and recent graduates with disabilities obtain employment with the federal government. Heather also serves UNM retirees and soon-to-be retirees as they explore what’s next.
