Senior Development Manager
I’m Heather. I am originally from a small town in Northeast Iowa. I graduated from the University of Northern Iowa with a degree in Marketing. We moved to the Benton county area in 2014. My career with Junior Achievement is by far my favorite of all the positions I have held. Everyday I get to work with passionate colleagues all focused on making life better for our youth.
Part of My Job: Connecting with other people who are dedicated to educating local youth about their financial future. In addition, seeing the light bulb moments when teaching Junior Achievement curriculum in the class room. It’s unforgettable when it all clicks and a student says “You mean I have to pay taxes?”
Things to do after 5 PM: Watching my children participate in school activities.
