Heather is a Clinical Operations Manager at Donor Network West, where she leads a multidisciplinary team that monitors, evaluates, and optimizes the complete donor process, from referral to recovery and transplantation. The team’s goal is to maximize organ donation opportunities to recover more organs for transplant.
Heather focuses on the development of strategies and action plans related to donor referrals, authorization, clinical management, and organ procurement processes. She is committed to serving HOPE donors, their families, and any recipients who are able to receive these life-saving gifts. She has worked collaboratively with the HOPE in Action research team to normalize and maximize HIV organ donation and research internally at Donor Network West, as well as share what her team has learned with OPOs across the country.
Heather spends every available weekend on the slopes skiing with her husband and children. She is grateful that her kids although, much better skiers, still want to hang out with her on the mountain.
