Heather Tipton

Heather is a born and raised Yukoner who returned 15 years ago with her family to raise her two boys. Heather believes in ensuring everyone has a voice, no matter what it looks or sounds like, as long as it's their voice being expressed. For the past ten years, she has been a teacher in one of the two shared resource programs at FHC. This year they introduced their new program name - Students' Transitional Educational Program, STEP. She wants to ensure each person has the opportunity to make a step forward in achieving their dreams. Heather is very passionate about supporting people who use Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) to communicate their thoughts and ideas. She believes in breaking down the big barriers to communication and developing smaller tangible steps to ensure success.
