Growing up in Cedar Rapids, Iowa taught Heidi a lot about family values. Surrounded by hard working farming communities growing crops to feed the world is very strategic and self sacrificing way of life and where detasseling as a teenager in the summer is a right of passage. Her feet were planted firmly in midwest values where treating others better than you want to be treated was modeled daily.
Heidi graduated from Iowa State University with a Bachelor in Science degree and began her career directly after college in mortgage lending. Heidi established a reputation for building and valuing relationships. During her career that spans two decades, Heidi has simplified the lending process for clients to make the homebuying journey fun, seamless and smooth.
In 2016, Heidi combined her passion for horses and love for people by founding Horse Haven Equine Sanctuary. Serving others is an important value, so naturally rescuing horses all across the U.S. and bringing them to a safe and loving environment to rehabilitate and allow children, veterans and the community to love on them and ultimately allow the horses to love them back. Saving horses and filling hearts with love is the motto for this rescue!
While not busy helping her clients, she enjoys traveling, hosting dinner parties and spending time with her two sons.
