What can you say about Heather Huffman? Huffman was born and raised in rural Indiana surrounded by corn fields, small towns, and Argyle enthusiasts. She went to Ball State University in Muncie, Ind., where she earned a degree in elementary education. While completing student teaching, though, she realized she did not want to teach elementary school and spent the next couple years a little lost and deciding on what she wanted to do. She decided to pursue working in higher education based on her experiences at Ball State and went on to earn a degree in College Student Personnel from Bowling Green State University in Bowling Green, Ohio. After being a cardinal and a falcon, she decided to keep the bird mascot theme and joined the CCU advising staff in 2009. Huffman chose to pursue working in advising because she enjoys figuring out the puzzle of course schedules and registration and helping students work toward their academic and career goals. Outside of advising, she enjoys watching ridiculous amounts of television and movies, reading books, attempting crafty projects of all types, and traveling to Walt Disney World whenever she can.
