Heidi has been working with individuals, families, businesses and organizations to achieve their charitable goals at OCF since 2015. Prior to joining OCF, Heidi spent seven years as a program director at the University of California Berkeley. She has served as a community mediator and facilitator and taught university-level courses in intercultural conflict in the U.S. and in Germany. Heidi holds a master's degree in intercultural relations from the University of the Pacific and a bachelor’s degree in French from the University of Oregon.


As a locally grown Southern Oregonian, Heidi is grateful for the opportunity to give back to the community where she was born and raised. When not at work, Heidi enjoys hikes, fresh snow, travel and chocolate with her husband and two sons.
