Heather has been working at Saint Francis as an adjunct educational facilitator since 2002, and now she joins the faculty full time as an instructor of physical therapy. She is experienced in her field, having worked for seven years as a staff physical therapist at ProCare Health Systems, Inc. in Roaring Spring, Pennsylvania.

Heather is very active in her community as well. She is a Pastoral Search and Screen Committee member and a youth leader at Martinsburg Grace Brethren Church.
