Heidi is a talent development and leadership expert who has long been fascinated by what drives ordinary people to deliver truly extraordinary results. She’s spent her career working across multiple industries and on the ground in more than 30 countries learning what truly works (and what doesn’t) to unleash potential and connect people to what matters most at work and in life. Today, she dedicates her time, alongside her brilliant colleagues, channeling that learning and expertise into creating the workplace of the future – one in which everyone can thrive.
Heidi brings a strong executive presence to her work and couples that with a warm, engaging spirit that makes her approachable and sought after as a consultant, facilitator, and coach. With a strong background in business and a history of leadership in both operations and people
functions, Heidi understands that a strong people strategy is a business strategy. She’s held executive HR roles at World Vision International, Tesla, Palo Alto Networks, and currently leads Talent & Growth at Cohesity, the world’s leading data storage & protection company.
Heidi holds a Bachelor’s degree from the University of Michigan. She’s been happily married to the love of her life for more than 20 years. They are the proud parents of both biological and bonus/foster daughters, and a giant dog. Heidi lives with her family in Michigan, loves wine, and speaks gratitude fluently.
