A Word from Our College Counselor
Dear Parents and Guardians,
My name is Heather Heck, and I am the new Director of College Counseling at Evansville Day School. I am thrilled to be joining the EDS community and to be working with all of the students and families here.
I am originally from Tell City, Indiana where I lived through high school. After graduating in 2006, I attended Vanderbilt University. I received a Bachelor of Science degree from Vanderbilt in 2010, majoring in Secondary Education and History. From there, I went on to graduate school at the University of Maryland, College Park where I received a Masters of Education in Counseling Psychology, School Psychology, and Counselor Education.
For the last few years, I have been working as a school counselor at a large public high school in Maryland. Due to its size, there were 6 school counselors for the high school alone, and I had the opportunity to focus on preparing the students for college and future careers.
I decided to move home to be closer to my family, particularly my newborn nephew. I truly love helping students find and cultivate their passions, and I am eager to have the opportunity to work with each of you every step of the way in the college admissions process.
In addition to college counseling, I will also be teaching 8th grade APPs the full year, Psychology this fall and College Counseling this spring. I will be coaching swimming this winter.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or would like to discuss your son/daughter’s educational future further.
