In this week's Alumni Spotlight, we catch up with alumna Heather Aarsvold.

What are you doing now?

I work at Mayo Clinic.

How did APS prepare you for this role?

APS teachers, counselors, secretaries, and other faculty prepared me on a daily basis for the role I’m in. If it wasn’t for them, I don’t know where I’d be today. I may have been too stubborn at times to recognize it, but to this day I’m thankful for all the help and guidance they gave me. They are the one who helped me become who I am today. 

What is your advice for current Packers?

Life can be hard sometimes, but never give up on your dreams.

Who at APS inspired you?

Angie Klein
