Heather Reyes (she/her)
Transfer Resource Center Coordinator
Heather received her AAS-DTA from Olympic College in 2009 and then transferred to the University of Washington where she graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology with Honors in Sociology in 2011. Never fear, while she is a proud Husky she is now a proud Coug as well (It’s possible!) having graduated from WSU with a Master of Arts in Sociology in 2015. In graduate school her main research focus was the outcomes of military veterans. Her interest in both sociology and military veteran outcomes was undoubtedly influenced by her experience as a longtime military dependent.
Heather is proud of her educational pathway. Being a first generation student, she did not feel she was cut out for a college degree of any sort or have any idea how to go about doing so. She feels very strongly about the access to education that transfer can provide and access to education in general. She is excited to be a part of the transfer team at WSU, helping students reach their goals and make the most of their experience at WSU.
