Heather began working for Scholastic Expeditions after an amazing experience accompanying her daughter on the Costa Rica Program.  Education and travel have always been passions for Heather.  She's traveled to 28 countries and lived in England, Guatemala, and Mexico.  Her Political Science degree from University of San Diego concentrated on International Relations, and she studied abroad with programs in Oxford, England and Cuernavaca, Mexico. Heather also interned at the World Affairs Council during college and worked in the International Study Abroad Center as the Student Coordinator for the Oxford Program.  Heather later spent her career in social work with the American Red Cross and County Health & Human Services. 
 
While continuing her education in community and international services at the Red Cross and Sacramento State University, Heather also pursued opportunities to engage in her kids education in and out of school.  She’s volunteered in classrooms, taught art to students, organized school international festivals, and remains a parent lead and advisory council member for a local youth-driven community service organization. 
 
With her position at Scholastic Expeditions she sees an exciting return to combining her passions of education and travel.  She finds great opportunity in helping teachers, kids, and parents explore the unique and life changing experiences that Scholastic Expeditions enrichment programs offer.
