Heather Craig

WUSM Sustainability Coordinator

Heather Craig is joining the sustainability team at the Washington University School of Medicine as Sustainability Coordinator. Heather is located in the Operations & Facilities Management Department on the WUSM campus and will work closely with the Office of Sustainability and other university partners to coordinate implementation and tracking of components of the Strategic Plan for Sustainable Operations, focusing on Transportation, Dining, Outreach, and Communications. 

Heather is a Saint Louis native, recently returned from Maine. After earning a Master of Arts in Anthropology from University of Missouri-Columbia, Heather worked as a Research Specialist at Missouri Orthopaedic Institute, providing her with relevant healthcare experience relating to her role at WUSM. Realizing her passion for sustainability education, she then spent two years as an AmeriCorps member in the role of Energy Efficiency Coordinator at Saint Joseph’s College of Maine, promoting energy efficiency and sustainability within the college and local community. Heather transitioned to Outreach Coordinator for Maine Green Power, a program allowing residents the option to support local renewable energy. 

In her work at WUSM, Heather is especially eager to increase community participation in sustainability efforts on campus, as she feels community driven interest is the biggest motivator for progress. Heather currently lives in South City and can usually be found reading under a tree or attempting to teach her niece to play piano.

“I am honored and excited to join the growing sustainability team at WUSM, and to work with such a passionate group of advocates for sustainability.”
