Heide joins Zero to Five Montana with experience in nonprofit communications and journalism. After graduating from the University of Montana with a journalism degree, her career began as a copy and layout editor at the Missoulian and when she moved to Helena she took up communications and marketing working for the Montana Hospital Association.
She found a passion for nonprofit communications during college internships with Montana Public Radio and Garden City Harvest. She is excited to help build a better Montana for future generations and, as a daughter of a kindergarten and preschool teacher, looks forward to diving deeper into the child care world.
Heide moved from Missoula to Helena in 2020 and now lives with her partner and their two tripod rescue dogs, Cici and Basil.
