Heather Horton, Ph.D., Director

Heather was trained as a Clinical Psychologist, and has 20 years of experience in providing mental health services and working with survivors of interpersonal violence.  She came to CC in 2005 as The College's first Sexual Assault Response Coordinator.  In that role, she developed a comprehensive sexual assault prevention education program for our community.  In 2012, she was selected to launch the Wellness Resource Center.  Heather is passionate about social justice, and much of her energy while at Colorado College has gone toward developing and implementing prevention programs focused on preventing violence, promoting mental health, and creating a healthy, caring campus community.

Chris Walters, M.S., Health Educator

Chris has a Master in Education from the University of Maine, where he also worked in student wellness for 2 years.  He is excited to join the Wellness Resource Center and to help mobilize, create, and sustain campus-wide health promotion practices.  Chris will be working on a broad range of health and wellness topics within our holistic model of wellness, but will spend much of his time working to prevent high-risk behaviors such as substance use and abuse, and to empower students to make healthy lifestyle choices.
