ABOUT HEIDI

Hi, welcome to Charity Matters. I am so glad you are here. We all have a story and if you have a minute, this is mine.

I am a traditional California girl at heart, who loves nothing more than making a difference and all things peanut butter and chocolate.  I am a non-profit founder and no stranger to desperately seeking balance in my crazy life as a wife, mother of three sons, writer, founder of Charity Matters and I run a non-profit, all while maintaining my involvement in the causes I care so deeply about. In case you haven’t realized, making a difference is really what gets me out of bed in the morning, that and a big latte.

Writing about myself is not half as fun as telling others people’s stories. I am a communicator, a communication major from USC with a degree in Business Communications. My past life was spent in Sales and Marketing, in the technology industry. Those skills all came in handy when friends and I founded The Spiritual Care Guild at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, a non-profit, that provides chaplains to children and families at CHLA. My full-time job, is serving as an Executive Director for a non-profit called The Association of Catholic Student Councils or TACSC. While a long name, an amazing organization that teaches peer to peer leadership skills to middle school students. Nothing I love more than planting the seeds of compassion in our youth!

If I ever have a spare minute you’ll find me running, water-skiing, entertaining friends or working in my garden. I’m so happy you are here and thanks for knowing that Charity Matters.
