Full Access High Desert

Heather Hopkins-Slechta

Executive Director


Heather Hopkins-Slechta is the Executive Director of the new Support Service Brokerage, Full Access High Desert. After 13 great years with Full Access, she is looking forward to the opportunity for the growth of services focusing on the High Desert region. It is important to Heather, both personally and professionally that services are available to support individuals to stay in their own homes or family homes. She is a strong proponent of self directed services and advocates these services continue to abide by the original philosophy that created the brokerage system. Heather received her degree in psychology from the University of Oregon and has been working in social services since 1992. She has participated on several state and local advisory committees, as well as planning committees for state wide conferences, related to services for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. After spending several years in the Willamette Valley, Heather moved her three generation household to Bend in 2013. She and her family enjoy the area and the outdoor recreation the High Desert has to offer.
