Public Health Microbiologist, Heather Maddox

When Heather Maddox decided to pursue a degree in Microbiology, she had already taken several courses at College of the Redwoods for personal growth. Her goal of becoming a certified Public Health Microbiologist for the state required that she complete a course in Microbiology, which CR offered.  Heather was able to complete several other courses required for her certification and obtained an Associate’s degree at College of the Redwoods in 2012.

With the foundation she got at CR, Heather was able to attend and complete a six month training program through the California Department of Public Health and now works for the Humboldt County Public Health Lab.

 “College of the Redwoods helped allow me to fulfill my "microbial dreams" without having to leave my home here in Humboldt!” said Heather.
