Assistant Director of Client Relations & Strategic Partnerships, Indianapolis

IU Communications Indianapolis

Indianapolis, IN 46202


Heather joined IU Communications in 2013 as a marketing project manager. In this role, she is able to do what she does best: build relationships with her clients and help facilitate their marketing and communications initiatives. Heather thrives in an environment that promotes and values teamwork and is thrilled to be a part of a staff of enthusiastic, multi-talented, and—especially—creative folks.

A recent returnee to Bloomington, Heather spent eleven years 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 that produced superb pinot noirs and a sassy red blend named Jezebel.

Heather received her B.A. in telecommunications with a minor in business from IU—and she is so happy to be back on campus! She loves to ride her bike to work, watch X-Files episodes (over and over again), rediscover great Bloomington restaurants with her husband, Trevor, and play celebrity fashion critic with her daughter, Maggie.
