Heather ThompsonHeather Miller Thompson ’10
Majored in Communication and Rhetorical Studies and Political Science
Issues Manager, GROWMARK, Inc.

“At IC I was exposed to new ideas, challenging perspectives, and nurturing and inspiring faculty. It was this foundation that prepared me to pursue internships and full-time employment in a field and an industry that I love.”
“IC taught me how to think globally about an issue and come to a creative and unique solution. IC is a “big-picture” school, and in the policy arena, I find that I have to do a lot of big picture thinking. My liberal arts education helps me approach a challenge from a different angle, and my broad-based understanding comes in handy on the very diverse issues that come across my desk in a day.”
