Heidi came to Lake Tahoe in 1995 to snowboard for the season. Growing up in Florida, it was definitely supposed to be just one winter. But she fell in love with Tahoe, got married and had two Tahoe boys. She has worked at Sierra-at-Tahoe, the League to Save Lake Tahoe and the Center for Collaborative Policy, at Sacramento State. She and her husband John are raising their boys to be as active and engaged in the community as they are.
