Heather has been with Delta Dental of Idaho since 2017.

Heather also oversees the Community Outreach program, which provides preventive oral health care and education to underserved communities throughout the state. Before coming to Delta Dental of Idaho Heather was the Oral Health and Wellness Solutions Manager at Northeast Delta Dental, and the Project Manager for the Healthy New Hampshire Foundation. Heather also served in the United States Air Force as an Air Traffic Controller, though she finds convincing people to floss is much more stressful than controlling fighter jet flight patterns.
