Email: awards@amwa-resident.org

Heather received a Bachelor of Arts in Integrative Biology and a minor in Scandinavian Studies at the University of California, Berkeley. After a gap year working at a tech start-up in Silicon Valley, she became part of the inaugural class at Western Michigan Homer Stryker MD School of Medicine.  Heather will be an incoming 1st year pathology resident at the University of Chicago.  She has wanted to be a pathologist since my Spring semester of my freshman year of college, so she is excited to finally start her calling!

Heather was Vice Chair for her medical school’s AMWA branch from 2015-2016 and the Region 6 Director for the student division from 2016-2017.  She is excited to join AMWA’s residency division and be co-chair of the awards division!

In her free time, she likes climbing, yoga, going to concerts, and going out to eat with her boyfriend and friends.
