Former special assistant to the Chief of Staff of Ohio Governor George V. Voinovich and executive assistant to the Chief of Staff at the Ohio Department of Transportation, Heidi has more than two and a half decades of experience working within and across the public, non-profit and private sectors. Heidi provides organizational planning and project management services to clients primarily in health information management, workers' compensation, transportation, and energy. A project organizer with proven results in project development, marketing and events management, Heidi has led initiatives and produced advocacy products for state and national groups, seamlessly handling the needs of clients from idea conception through project execution. From targeted efforts such as research and data collection, perception and consensus development and advocacy issues management to larger-scale public outreach projects including events, logistics and registration management of continuing education seminars, trade shows, business meetings, and special events of various sizes and venues, Heidi provides quality, comprehensive, tailored services that capitalize on the client's opportunity to improve issue and brand awareness, tap new or underutilized revenue streams, develop attendance and buy-in, and other targeted outcomes -- often as part of the company's larger business advocacy or development strategy.
Heidi has been an active advocate and leader of urban redevelopment and urban infrastructure and is a proven leader of neighborhood issues advocacy. Heidi is the past president of the Eastmoor Civic Association & Blockwatch and former chair of the ECA&B Economic Development Committee. Heidi led efforts in code enforcement, critical infrastructure improvements and spearheaded a collaborative project with the City of Columbus and area neighborhoods to establish planning standards for two critical corridors on the Eastside. In 2007, Heidi ran for Columbus City Council, the nation's 14th largest city. Although an unsuccessful bid, Heidi obtained significant recognition and key endorsements from the Fraternal Order of Police and The Columbus Dispatch and executed a dynamic campaign that successfully conveyed messages that resonated with the public.
From a military family that served in a diplomatic capacity, Heidi spent her formative years in Asia including Taipei and Taichung, Taiwan; Hong Kong; Kobe, Japan; and Beijing, China where she worked at the International School serving the diplomatic and international business communities. Heidi is a graduate of The Ohio State University, a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution and has served on several education boards. Heidi lives on the eastside with her husband and business partner, Jim, and their two children.
