Heather attended Anake Outdoor School in 2007-2008, and after a few more years wandering between the wilds of the North Cascades and the urban wilds of Portland Oregon, Heather returned to Duvall to apply her multi-faceted experience behind the scenes at WAS, where she wears multiple hats including Bookkeeper, Kamana Mentor, Bookseller, Bird Language Club Coordinator, and all-around Office Elf.
