Heather started at Our Saviour’s in April of 2019. It was not a planned move on her part but she feels very strongly that the Lord led her here. She is the Office & Ministry Assistant, which encompasses so many different things, and she loves having that variety. Heather and her husband, Mickey, have two sons. Zack is in high school, and Nate is in middle school. They also have two large dogs as part of the family. Jax is a Husky/Lab mix and Baxter is a German Rottweiler. Heather is also a part-time student pursuing her bachelor’s degree in accounting. At various times of the year, she volunteers with the Chamber of Commerce and the Cannon Valley Fair Board.
