Heather received her undergraduate in Physics at Colorado State University. She worked with Little Shop of Physics while an undergraduate and was with the crew on their first t-shirt tie dying adventure! Working with Little Shop of Physics transformed the way she thought about physics. When shopping she often thinks about how an everyday object can be modified to teach physics. Besides a passion for teaching science Heather enjoys skiing, tending her garden, and long nights gazing at the stars.Type your paragraph here.
