Heather studied Zoology at WSU and became an active member of the
WSU Raptor Club. As a Raptor Club officer, she began photographing the
club's birds to help with fundraising efforts. Soon after, she started entering
her pictures in photography contests on campus. Her photo, Sunning, won best in
show in 2007 and Two of a Kind was picked for people's choice the following year
in the WSU Outdoor Recreation Center's annual photo contest.
Heather takes her camera along with her everywhere she goes. She is always
getting left behind by her friends and family while she stops to photograph
anything and everything. Heather describes her photos as a whole lot of patience
and a little bit of luck.
Prior to vet school, Heather worked in the Exotics and Wildlife Ward at the
Veterinary Teaching Hospital. This is where she became interested in exotic
animal medicine and wildlife rehabilitation. This is the path she hopes to
follow after graduation.
