Heidi Schauble finds her passion in supporting people with disabilities

Heidi Schauble graduated from UW Bothell with a Bachelor of Arts in Society, Ethics & Human Behavior (’13), and a Master of Arts in Policy Studies (‘15).  During this time, she worked as a teacher for students with intellectual and developmental disabilities in a private, nonprofit school, and she partnered with the Woodinville Rotary to launch the Rotaract Club at UW Bothell, a student club dedicated to civic service.
 
After completing her masters and a capstone research project on education policy issues in Washington State, Heidi was hired as an Employment Consultant for AtWork!. At Work! supports people with intellectual and developmental disabilities to find, develop, and retain job opportunities. In October 2016, she was promoted as their Quality and Data Coordinator and was recently promoted again to Quality and Data Manager. In her new role, Heidi is responsible for reporting agency outcomes, providing quality assurance, and tracking outcome indicators in accordance with their grants and funding sources.
