College Counseling

A Word from Our College Counselor

Dear Parents and Guardians,
My name is Heather Heck, and I am the new Director of College Counseling at Evansville Day School.  I am thrilled to be joining the EDS community and to be working with all of the students and families here.
I am originally from Tell City, Indiana where I lived through high school.  After graduating in 2006, I attended Vanderbilt University.  I received a Bachelor of Science degree from Vanderbilt in 2010, majoring in Secondary Education and History.  From there, I went on to graduate school at the University of Maryland, College Park where I received a Masters of Education in Counseling Psychology, School Psychology, and Counselor Education.
For the last few years, I have been working as a school counselor at a large public high school in Maryland.  Due to its size, there were 6 school counselors for the high school alone, and I had the opportunity to focus on preparing the students for college and future careers. 
I decided to move home to be closer to my family, particularly my newborn nephew.  I truly love helping students find and cultivate their passions, and I am eager to have the opportunity to work with each of you every step of the way in the college admissions process. 
In addition to college counseling, I will also be teaching 8th grade APPs the full year, Psychology this fall and College Counseling this spring.  I will be coaching swimming this winter.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or would like to discuss your son/daughter’s educational future further.
