As an admissions counselor at BVU, Heather Runneberg hopes to show each prospective student all that BVU and the city of Storm Lake have to offer.
“It is my ultimate goal to encourage students to dive into the BVU and Storm Lake communities,” says Heather. “I want students to see the whole picture of what it is like to attend BVU.”
Heather has been a member of the BVU community since 2001 when she began working as a loans specialist. In 2008, she became an enrollment coach for BVU’s Graduate & Professional Studies until accepting her current position in 2012. In 2011, Heather earned her bachelor’s degree from BVU in organizational leadership.
“BVU is unique in that it is small enough to cater to the individual needs of each student,” adds Heather. “Not only do students receive an exceptional educational experience, but they have the chance to apply what they learn through travel, research and internship opportunities that are specific to their passions.”
In her spare time, Heather enjoys photography, baking, and spending time with her friends and family including her two daughters, Alex and Teagan.
