Introducing new director, Heather Allen

Heather Allen, Director of EdventuresLAB

We couldn’t be more excited for her addition to the team. Heather’s educational credentials will blend well with her operational knowledge and background. She has most recently been “getting her geek on” by teaching computer technology classes to adults throughout the Treasure Valley. Her degree in Elementary Education and Teaching, her knowledge of organizational structure and management, as well as her life experiences uniquely qualify her for the Edventures model.

As the daughter of an Air Force Colonel, Heather spent much of her youth moving across the country. As a result, she learned at a very young age the importance of building and maintaining relationships quickly – a skill that has been a great benefit to Heather professionally. Additionally, she acquired a love of learning and exploration, and met each new situation with excitement and curiosity. Education became both a hobby and a passion.

With a strong background in teaching and training, Heather thoroughly enjoys working with people of all ages to help them find ways to feel more empowered, more resourceful, and more equipped with the tools and skills necessary to enhance their careers and pursue their dreams. Heather resides in Meridian, ID, where she is the proud mother of four beautiful children, and is married to a wonderful husband.

She and her husband, Jordan, are co-founders of the national charity Sleep In Heavenly Peace (SHP), an organization that builds handmade bunk beds for children in need, where she serves as Corporate Trainer and Chief Public Relations Officer. We will all benefit from her experiences building SHP into the organization it is today.

We are excited for the energy Heather brings and are anxious for you all to get to meet her. And while she may not know the ins and outs of all the curriculum we offer at Edventures Lab, she does embody the values and ideas that are at the core of our educational model. She is eager to learn and courageous enough to try it! Welcome Heather!
