Dr. Heather Rudolph is originally from Baker City, Oregon. Growing up in a rural town taught her about community involvement, leadership and animal stewardship through her participation in 4-H and FFA and played a major role in who she is today.

Heather has traveled nationally and internationally and lived in large and small towns in the Deep South and in the west. Her master’s degree specialized in Human Anatomy & Physiology, which is still her favorite subject to teach and learn about. She taught for several years at community colleges before returning to school as a student and earning a doctorate in Science Education. Her dissertation research had to do with active learning in gardens with middle school agricultural science students. Heather completed a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Northern Colorado where she conducted educational research and taught general biology and human anatomy & physiology.

When she is not teaching, you might find Heather at home hanging out with her chickens, trying new gardening techniques in her yard, or exploring Wyoming.
