I worked alongside Heather Gardner at the Division of Child and Family Services in West Valley City. Heather and I collaborated occasionally on cases, and also shared an office during that time at our agency.
Heather's work in foster care and permanency cases involved her meeting directly with families in need, many times in their own homes. She was a very patient and caring social worker who would spend hours on the phone and in person helping clients cope with very difficult situations.
Heather is also bilingual in Spanish, so those in our office often relied on her skills to help us when we had language barriers with our own clients. She was also very accepting and respectful when working with people who shared different values than her own.
I know as a mother herself Heather has continued be an advocate for the children and families of Utah. Heather would be a tremendous asset and a strong, capable voice for the people.
Heather is the kind of person that we need in politics. We need people like her who believe in the Constitution and care about our future. Great job Heather!!
"I've watched Heather at work, and she knows how to get things done. She's got all the right values - faith, family, personal liberty and responsibility."
She is a good person through and through!
