Heather Enos

Heather studied Business Administration at Washington University in St. Louis and followed up with Accounting at the University of Arizona.

Heather Enos has been employed at the University of Arizona since 1991, starting in University Administration, later moving onto Arizona Research Laboratories - Biotechnology, and finally joining The Lunar and Planetary Laboratory in August of 1997. Heather was lured to LPL by the excitement of the 2001 Mars Odyssey mission! Heather initially joined the GRS team as the Operations and Outreach Manager, she later advanced to GRS Project Manager. In parallel to working on GRS, she participated in the final year of the 1998 MVACS TEGA instrument build and delivery. Unfortunately, she also witnessed the MPL failure and the unfortunate loss of TEGA I. Heather is currently the project manager for the 2001 Mars Odyssey Gamma Ray Spectrometer team as well as the project manager for the 2007 Phoenix Thermal Evolved Gas Analyzer team. The GRS instrument has provided excellent information about the Red Planet. The success of GRS has given Heather the incentive and desire to continue working on space exploration projects. She is optimistic TEGA II will have its day in the "sun" and expose another chapter of exciting discoveries.
