UAMT Board

Meet our board members! Serving for the members of our association, as well as with people of Utah, we hope to help educate and support the development of music therapy in our state.

Heather Overly


Heather Overly has been board certified since 2001 and owns her own private practice, Overlymusical. She has served as UAMT treasurer and on the Continuing Education each for two years.  She is hoping to unite Utah music therapists to work collaboratively together to strengthen the current Utah music therapy workforce in a non-competitive way.   She feels the more we work together to strengthen each other and build each other up the stronger we will be as a whole profession.
