After graduation, Heather worked as a Human Resources Administrator at Vermont Teddy Bear Company.

At UVM, she was involved in Campus Activities and was a teaching assistant in an introductory Business class. Heather also took advantage of the many internships available at the School of Business Administration and worked in the Human Resources department at Blue Cross Blue Shield of Vermont.

Heather recalls and appreciates the access she was given to networks through faculty and fellow students.; Her favorite class was BSAD 121: Human Resources Special Topics. She encourages current students to get involved, make connections, and begin building their networks. She says students should always ask questions and get internships. Heather says it is "one of the best ways to determine the field you want to work in."
