About: Before coming to the Writing Centre, Heather taught Adult Education, and was also the Learning Strategist at STU for 3 years. Her father graduated from STU in 1974, so she is a second generation STUdent, and feels like this is home. When she is not working with words, Heather is running after her adorable twin girls.


Writing Pet Peeve: Overuse of the word “literally.”


Random Fact about Heather: She plays tin whistles and sings in a Celtic folk band. She recently bought an accordion and is taking lessons.
