During her Spring 2018 semester, she studied abroad at the University of Oslo, Norway, to learn about feminist criminology and restorative justice. Heather has long been passionate about social justice reform and research, previously interning for the Maryland Office of the Public Defender and National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism and Responses to Terrorism (START) in addition to teaching social science courses for inmates at the P.G. County Correctional Facility with the Petey Greene Program. Her time at the Xfinity Center and START fostered her love for communications and media design, which she considers a vital tool for activism and voter education. At NARAL, Heather hopes to gain more experience in and continue contributing to the nexus of social justice and creative media. She is particularly interested in increasing women inmates’ access to medical services and using social media as a voter education tool for reproductive rights issues.
