Coaching Style

It is Heather’s goal to connect students with meaningful healthcare experiences such as job shadowing, volunteer work, clubs, internships, employment, and professional opportunities. Students are encouraged to meet with Heather to explore career options, plan ahead, and seek feedback so they are prepared for their next step, whether that be applying to a medical or graduate program, or landing a job.
