Heather has always had a passion for working with horses and helping others. She is no stranger to Forward Stride, having volunteered on Saturday mornings for six years before being hired on as staff in 2017. She brings a sense of gratitude to each day and enjoys continually learning from her fellow humans and horses.

She works to make sure Forward Stride has a firm foundation from which to grow by leading the development and communications teams, managing donations, and facilitating funding opportunities. She loves sharing our work with the public and connecting donors to a cause that is making a unique and meaningful impact in the community!
Heather’s three favorite things are spending time at the barn, traveling to new places, and her family & friends.
