Heather Harman - PEPS Facilitator
Heather Harman is thrilled to be bringing her passion for working with new families to MAIA midwifery. She holds a master’s degree in education and taught elementary school before becoming a parent. Parenthood was an incredibly transformative time of life that greatly challenged her sense of self. She found it further challenging as a queer identified person to find resources that matched her experience. This fuels her passion for working with families in the LGBTQ community. She has worked as a parent educator at Seattle Central College in the Parent/Child Center and has facilitated groups through PEPS. During the week, she enjoys her work supporting preschool teachers, students and their families throughout greater Seattle. Heather is a certified Gottman Bringing Baby Home educator and is building a private practice as a life coach and parent educator. Heather lives in Columbia City with her partner and her 10 year old son.
Kat Henolson - PEPS Facilitator
Kat has facilitated MAIA’s PEPS Groups for LGBTQ Families since 2016. Although she has read many parenting books, most of her parenting knowledge has come from first-hand experience and talking with other parents. As facilitator, Kat encourages other parents to connect, learn from each other and grow together. Kat and her wife live in Columbia City, Seattle with their two girls.
