As a Philanthropic Advisor for Strategic Philanthropy, Ltd., Heather is an integral part of the client services team. Her deep experience in grantmaking is demonstrated in the grantee partner relationships she has created and managed for clients. One of the areas in which Heather plays a leadership role is in next-generation philanthropy and mentoring younger philanthropists to help them take on leadership roles in their family philanthropy.
Prior to relocating to Chicago, Heather 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. She joined Strategic Philanthropy, Ltd., in 2017 as Grants Administrator and has grown with the firm. Heather is a graduate of Michigan State University.
