Heather joined the CBS 11 News Team in November 2011. She's excited to be working as a "one-man-band" as both a photographer and reporter.
Heather spent the past four years working at KEZI in Eugene, Oregon. Highlights from her time there include interviewing President Barack Obama one-on-one during the primary elections in 2008 and traveling to India in July 2011 with a local non-profit, India Partners, to profile several of its projects including a sustainable emu farm and safe houses for women and children in the sex trade industry.
While attending the University of Montana in Missoula, Heather interned at the NBC affiliate, KCFW, in Kalispell, then worked as a producer and reporter for KPAX, the CBS affiliate in Missoula.
A Montana native, Heather is thrilled to be back in the mountains and is excited to see everything Alaska has to offer.
