Hello, I’m Heather Haslem, and I’m excited to become the primary writer for the Catalyst Blog. I am a Senior Workforce Development Coordinator for CASAT, and I host our new podcast CASAT Conversations. I am grateful for this opportunity to serve as the primary writer for the Catalyst Blog, as I enjoy writing, and I love reviewing the latest research. I look forward to continuing the legacy of the blog, by synthesizing meaningful, and timely behavioral health topics into digestible information that is relevant to your work.
Here is a little about me, as we begin to get to know one another. I have worked as an entrepreneur, program director, researcher, educator, and advocate – leading and teaching others to enhance their own wellbeing. I am a native Nevadan, and I received both my degrees from the University of Nevada, Reno (UNR). While studying at UNR, I received my Bachelor’s in Psychology, with a Minor in Addiction Treatment and a Master of Science in Human Development & Family Studies, with an emphasis in Gerontology from the University of Nevada, Reno.
In addition to my formal education, I consider myself a lifelong learner, as I continue to study and learn throughout my career. I am qualified Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction teacher, a Mind-Body Skills trained facilitator, a certified yoga instructor, a Duke University trained Integrative Health Coach, a National Board-Certified Health & Wellness Coach, and Certified Wellness Professional.
