Heather, our volunteer champion development coordinator, empowers and inspires potential champions and donors to get involved in RiverCross. Heather believes each child is uniquely and wonderfully made by God. God calls each of us to love and care for the needs - body, mind, soul and spirit - of these children in the midst of their distress (James 1:27). It was the need for Biblically-sound, trauma healing and counseling tools in the OVC [orphan and vulnerable children] community that drew Heather to RiverCross.
Heather has many years of experience as a CPA, advisor and business consultant, working with public, private and non-profit organizations as well as individuals. Heather and her husband Matt live in Raleigh, NC and have three children and a yellow lab. They love the beach and the mountains, and enjoy traveling, biking, hiking, fishing, snow skiing and just being together!
