Kirsten Heckendorf came to There With Care as a volunteer for the organization with passion for its mission. Soon, she began planning and overseeing the first Denver-based Golf Tournament in 2013 and organized the first Alex and Ani sale benefiting There With Care. These events brought many new friends to the organization and began expanding the outreach of There With Care in the Denver area.
Ms. Heckendorf is a valuable member of the Annual Signature Events and is an integral part of the Events Committee. In 2014, Ms. Heckendorf helped launch a community space in Denver, home for volunteers and donors, to come together on projects that support the programs and services provided by There With Care.
Ms. Heckendorf previously worked in medical and legal fields for more than twenty-two years as a Project Manager and Director of Operations, providing medical and environmental experts (primarily in toxic torts including Anderson vs. PG&E aka: Erin Brokovich Case) with document management and research to prepare physicians and experts for testimony. In 2005 Ms. Heckendorf scaled back and became a care provider to her sister-in-law during her battle with cancer, and finally concluded her last case in the fall of 2012. Ms. Heckendorf continues to provide management consulting to small businesses.
Bringing tireless dedication and energy to There With Care, Kirsten has helped to expand the community of care to help better support the families we serve during a fragile time. We are grateful for her service and are fortunate and honored to have her on the Board of Directors.
