Heather Edelblute

Assistant Director of Client Relations & Strategic Partnerships

IU Communications Indianapolis
340 W. Michigan Street

Indianapolis, IN 46202


Heather joined IU Communications in 2013. After four years as a marketing project manager, she moved on up to become assistant director for client relations and strategic partnerships on the IUPUI campus. She thrives in this role, where every day she partners with clients to help them achieve their marketing and communications goals. She doesn’t even mind the commute from Bloomington (much).

Visibly and vocally proud to be part of a team of enthusiastic, multitalented, and—especially—creative folks, Heather’s always smiling. She actively promotes and values teamwork—and it shows.

Heather received her B.A. in telecommunications with a minor in business from IU. She returned to Bloomington after an 11-year hiatus in Portland, Oregon, where she worked in account management and marketing for Euro RSCG Tyee MCM, a direct response advertising agency and production company, as well as in direct sales and marketing for Daedalus Cellars, a family-owned winery. (Sadly, Portland is a little less weird since she left.)

When she’s not cultivating client relationships, Heather enjoys The X-Files, hiking, camping, and road trips out west with her family. Her two hound dogs and orange cat keep her occupied (and warm) while she’s at home.

No, really. I smile a lot!
