Meet Our Team

Heather Jolivette, CPNP
I really enjoy working with teens and helping with their health needs. In my spare time, I like spending time with my children/family. I also like doing anything active, like swimming, hiking, biking, and ice skating."

I love working with the students at GWHS. My family and the outdoors are how I spend my time off. Cockatiels are my fave! George and Momma LU are my feathered kids."
