About Me:

Heather is the Finance & Operations Manager of the North Coast Small Business Development Center. She has been with the center since December 2020.

Heather has worked in the nonprofit sector for more than 12 years, with St Joseph Hospital as well as smaller local enterprises. She co-owns a small family woodworking business and so understands personally how small businesses keep our community and families thriving. She has a Bachelor degree in Health Care Management and brings years of operational and team-building acumen to North Coast SBDC.

As a lifelong Humboldt County resident, Heather is committed to serving and empowering our community. She enjoys her memberships with Rotary and Soroptomist as a way of building relationships and having opportunities to serve. She also serves on the Redwood Memorial Hospital Foundation Board.

In her spare time, Heather spends time with her husband and three children appreciating the beauty of the outdoors in the North Coast and entertaining friends at home.
