Heather Newton

Dual Career Program Specialist

Heather grew up just outside of Charlottesville, went to college in New Jersey, spent 6 years in Florida, and is now a local once again. She holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Communication from Monmouth University and has over 15 years of professional communications experience. Before joining the Dual Career Program, Heather served on a variety of teams at UVA, including University Human Resources (writing and posting UVA job descriptions), The Center for Leadership Excellence (developing strong leaders and teams), and The Ufirst Project (serving on a University-wide transformation initiative).  She is excited to share how communications is a critical component of the job search process and why Charlottesville is the best place to call home.
