As a Program Associate for Strategic Philanthropy, Ltd., Heather is an integral part of the client services team providing support around data gathering and analysis for clients as well as facilitating grantee partner relationships. She also serves as Knowledge Manager for the firm keeping staff, clients and advisor colleagues up to date on what is happening in or impacting the philanthropy sector. In this capacity she serves as the Editor of The Philanthropic Current®, a compilation of news and information for the Advisor Community.
Heather brings deep experience in private foundations and the non-profit and sector. Prior to relocating to Chicago, she was at the Steele Foundation, a private foundation in Phoenix, Arizona, committed to the education, safety and overall well-being of children and their families. Because the Steele Foundation had a small staff, Heather filled numerous roles, most notably as the Foundation’s Grants Administrator, but also as executive assistant to the President of the Foundation and general ‘go-to person’ for events and office management. Heather is a graduate of Michigan State University and is excited to be back in the Midwest building on her career in philanthropy.
