Development Manger – National Association of Waterfront Employers
Heather brings an array of skills to the table from working in both the nonprofit and private sector. After graduating from the University of Mary Washington with a degree in global development and Spanish, she served a year as an AmeriCorps member. There, she was a case manager for students who spoke English as their second language, helping to sharpen their literacy skills. Heather’s next adventure was with a national nonprofit as an outreach and research assistant where she helped build an advocacy program and case managed college students. Her most recent experience was at a private consulting firm working with government clients on outreach and marketing. Heather enjoys volunteering for nonprofits; her most proud accomplishment was contributing to a volunteer research project on government-provided social housing around the world. In her spare time, Heather loves to travel: on a plane, hiking on foot, through books, or preparing worldly cuisine. She is looking forward to building relationships at NAWE.
