Heather McCullen, M.S.

Associate Director, Operations

Heather has been active in online Diabetes communities since her spouse was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes in 2012. With Salem Oaks she uses that experience to connect with stakeholders through social media.

She studied Anthropology and Linguistics as an undergraduate and has a Master’s Degree in Human Resources. As the wife of someone with a chronic illness, she is conscious of the differences between how patients, caretakers, family members, and healthcare professionals experience disease. She is passionate about learning and listening to see all sides of a situation. Heather is especially interested in bringing awareness to the individuality of each person’s experience with health and healthcare, and the importance of inclusive language.
