Suzanne Parker, Executive Director

“Heidi had been serving as the Interim Executive Director when I began and she was instrumental in preparing the organization for a smooth executive transition. In her role, Heidi worked directly with the Board of Directors and was highly effective engaging them in fundraising efforts, achieving outstanding results. As a key member of the senior management team, Heidi provided passionate organizational leadership and demonstrated amazing skills in strategic planning, organizational assessment, department and program restructuring, and was a motivating team leader. As Director of Development and Public Relations, Heidi ensured continuous fundraising analysis, built outstanding relationships with major donors and dramatically increasing individual giving. She designed several different mission focused events in her tenure, and all were carried out with excellent results. I highly recommend Heidi; any organization would benefit from the opportunity to work with her.”

Heidi brings a deep understanding of organizational development to her work. This allows her to work with existing initiatives while developing new ideas, positioning organizations for growth. Any organization looking for someone to develop a new initiative, perfect an existing project, step in as a senior manager, train staff or organize fund raising efforts needs to call Heidi Thomson-Daly.”
