Heidi is the Graduate Assistant for the Department of Communication. She helps handle all faculty affairs for the Communication Leadership program. She has worked for the University of Washington since 2013 and has been with Comm Lead since 2016. She really enjoys her work as faculty liaison and strives to make the experience of teaching for the program an easy and well-supported one.
Heidi received her BA in Global Studies from the University of Washington-Bothell, while minoring in French and Human Rights. She is currently pursuing a Master’s in Public Policy and Governance from the Evans School.
Outside of work, Heidi spends the majority of her free time doing research associated with public policy. When she does have those rare moments of no school work, she likes to snowboard with her husband, Darren, during the winter. During the summer, she tries to attend as many outdoor festivals as possible and soak up as much sunshine as she can! She is also a huge football fan and can be found at every Huskies home game.
Heidi’s office is located in CMU 251C.
