Heidi has been with IARC for five years! She is a Program Coordinator and the Italian speaker for IARC. Heidi is a true Italian through and through! She loves all things Italian – good food, great wine, amazing art, and wonderful conversation!

Have a coworker describe you.

Executive Assistant aka “Kate the Saint” had this to say about Heidi:

Heidi is always quick to show initiative and is one of the first to offer help when others need it. She is truly invested in both her surrogates and intended parents lives and goes above and beyond the call of duty to be certain they are ok throughout their journey with us. Her heart is filled with compassion and empathy. She has an impeccable work ethic and is one of the most reliable and dedicated employees I know. On a personal level she is quick witted, enjoys adventures with friends, laughing and sharing recipes. I love listening to her speak Italian and have yet to share her pizza passion with her. Voici pour toi mon ami!

 

What is the best part about your job or why you love working for IARC?

Nothing is more rewarding than seeing my surrogates and intended parents continue their special bond even after their journey has been completed. Receiving updates and photos long after the birth makes this job so worthwhile!

 

Share a fun fact about yourself. 

I’m a foodie!  I’ve discovered what homemade Rwandan food tastes like this past month and it’s amazing!

 

If you could visit anywhere in the world you’ve never been, where would you go?

Buenos Aires, Argentina.

 

What is an IP or SU story that motivates you in your work?

Surrogates who have had several failed cycles or transfers who really want to help intended parents create a forever family! It makes me want to work harder to make their dreams come true.

 

Three things I would struggle to live without are……………………..

pizza, my morning coffee and driving a manual car!
