From Casa Roble to NASA: Heidi Poppelreiter Parris’s #MySJStory

At a young age, Heidi Poppelreiter Parris discovered her passion. 

“I’ve been interested in space for as long as I can remember,” said Parris. 

During her high school years at Casa Roble Fundamental High School, she became more focused on her goal.

“I really loved all the science classes that I got to take in high school,” 

Now, as a NASA scientist, Parris wants to inspire others to follow their dreams. 

“Find what you enjoy and take the time to get a good foundational base and explore it further,” said Parris.
