Heather has served as Associate Director for SVP Charlotte since 2015. As a UNC Charlotte graduate with a background in education and counseling, Heather worked for several years with Sylvan Learning Centers and the public school system in Union County. She first observed the challenges facing at risk students while teaching at a Title 1 school and realized her true passion for partnering with these schools on a larger scale. Heather believes that the community, where her own family lives and works, collectively has the opportunity to make a huge impact for the better. She enjoys attending events around Charlotte with her husband and two young children.
