More About Me

I Bet You Didn’t Know

  • Outside of spending time with her family and friends, Heather enjoys hobbies as a woodworking enthusiast, sewing novice and avid reader.

    A flashback about myself, is that I grew up the oldest of 9 siblings with a Calculus teacher/IT  father and creative 1st grade teacher mother, where we lived as everyday “fabbers” – encouraging us that trial and error was a welcome process.  Our home was an like an old-school Fab lab, where my fascination with old C++ coding to make math space invader type games blossomed from 6th grade and beyond.

What I Love About My Job

  • I consider myself a creative, innovative, hands-on, problem solving person, which I believe embodies Fab Labs unscripted journey where students imagine, create, chart and build their own projects. Simply put FabLab, its goals and process excite me. I can’t wait to get to work everyday to help Brady Middle School students, teachers and our community to support their unscripted journey at Brady.

A Transforming Moment

  • I have seen FabLab’s results from a parent’s perspective with my daughter at Brady, who loved the experience and came home with a sense of accomplishment and sparked dialogue about her creative process. Now as Brady Fab Lab’s Assistant Manager, I see that process every day as students embark on their creative journey. It is magical.
