Heather Schaffer

Heather began working at New Haven in 2008 as a staff in the Rosa Parks house. Since that time, she has worked in every residential position, from an on-call staff to her current position. Heather is known for her talent to connect with and train the residential staff. She loves to help them catch New Haven’s vision of healing through residential and clinical sophistication, and guide them in carrying out therapeutic interventions.

She has a calming presence and a natural ability to connect with those around her. Heather is consistent and loving, which creates a feeling of safety for our students and their families. She looks forward to any opportunity she has to take a student off campus and spend time with her outdoors.

Heather grew up as the second of six children in sunny Arizona, where she spent most of her time outside playing soccer or running around in the sprinklers. She moved to Utah to attend Brigham Young University where she graduated in 2006 with a degree in integrative biology. Heather is married and has three young (adorable!) children. She loves to go on adventures with her family and discover all that the beautiful state of Utah has to offer.
