Heather Bullett Brings Her Work Experience with the Vermont DEC to RSENR
- By Shari Halik
There’s a friendly, new face in the Rubenstein School Business Service Center. Heather Bullett (UVM ’97) joined the staff in December 2013. Her official title is grants management coordinator, but she teams with Karen Duncan, grants management coordinator, and Kathleen Wells, business analyst, to help faculty and staff with most school-related financial transactions.
Heather’s background fits the Rubenstein School perfectly. In her previous positions with the Vermont Department of Environmental Conservation in Montpelier and Waterbury, Heather spent seven years managing grants for the Rivers Program and conducting conservation-related field work for the Lakes and Ponds Section and the Biomonitoring Lab.
She grew up in North Carolina and South Florida and graduated from UVM with a BA in anthropology and a minor in studio art. She attended graduate school at Longwood University in Virginia and earned her Master’s in elementary education before returning to Vermont to work for the State.
"I really wanted to work for the Rubenstein School because of my background and interest in the environment and natural resources and my experience in grants management," explains Heather.
Heather is excited to help faculty, staff, and students manage their research projects, to learn more about the business side of the School, and to work in an academic/learning environment. She is also thrilled to be located in Burlington, where she lives.
With a passion for the outdoors, Heather cross country skis, snowshoes, canoes, kayaks, hikes, and knits. She lives with her partner Milia Bell, a cat toy business owner, and her dog and cat in the New North End.
