Maria Chavez Wilcox, President & CEO

“Heidi is a consummate professional in all definitions of that word.  Having never worked with an interim Chief Development Officer before I was just hoping for the best, but Heidi more than surpassed my loftiest of expectations. She joined our agency at an incredibly critical and sensitive time of staff transition.  She not only won over the entire staff but was able to ‘tackle’ the thorny issues that needed to be addressed with grace and timely accomplishments.  She is an asset and gift to any organization that will allow itself to be guided by her depth of experience and results oriented mind-set. She is missed greatly by all of us (especially me!) and we only hoped we could retain her forever!”

Joyce F. Jackson, President & CEO

“Heidi did a terrific job leading us up to and through our annual Foundation Board retreat. It really was very well done, one of the best retreats we’ve had during my 16 years at NKC. Heidi’s concrete examples, fun interactive experiences, and specific tips as to how to be successful in major gifts fundraising made everyone feel more competent. I would highly recommend her for retreat planning, training and facilitation!”
