About Heather Anderson

As a tomboy in southern Maine, I spent my youth playing kickball and night tag, building forts in the woods, and reading every single book I could get my hands on. I find endless joy in sitting on my porch, no matter the season. I'm still a relatively new addition to the COA community, but my experience here has been one of the best things to ever happen to me. I love what this college stands for, what it does, and how it does it. Few things make me happier than messing around with my camera, long walks in the woods with my dog Roscoe, traveling adventures with my friends, and hitting the water with my kayak.
