Resource & Referral Manager
Heather has been with BANANAS since 2002 when she began as Inclusion Coordinator. Currently, she is Resource & Referral Manager, maintaining the referral database of child care providers and early childhood programs, as well as the Referral Room and Reception areas of BANANAS. Before joining the BANANAS bunch, she worked for the California Child Care Resource & Referral Network on its Child Care Initiative Project and other administrative programs, as well as the American Humane Association in Washington D.C. where she covered public policy issues around child and animal welfare protection.
She earned her Master’s Degree in Public Administration with an emphasis in Nonprofit Management from San Francisco State University, and is very dedicated to the success of nonprofit organizations. She likes the energy that the staff and clients bring to BANANAS and feels fulfilled helping families and child care providers. Heather enjoys international travel and modern dance, and lives with her wonderful husband and very fun, creative young daughters.
