Heather Escalona

HR and Operations Coordinator


As the HR and Operations Coordinator, Heather is committed to supporting Day One’s youth-centered programming and providing administrative support to the organization.

Heather received her BA from Pace University in Communications & Media Studies in 2015. As a student, she became passionate about the fight against teen dating violence and helped to organize a Day One event on campus to start a discussion about dating abuse and raise awareness. Heather presented the planning, execution and success of this event at Pace University’s Best Practices 2015 Conference. Since college, she has interned and volunteered with Day One and a local domestic violence organization in her New Jersey hometown in communications, development and social media capacities.

Heather is excited to be a part of the organization’s operations that allows the Day One staff to continue to do the important work necessary to bring an end to teen dating violence.
