Terri Heeter, Secretary

Terri is the latest member of the LFFAC board. When she and her husband adopted a cat from an animal shelter in 2014, she soon became obsessed with the feline species. Then in November 2018, they decided to move to Longmont, Colorado.

Terri is an experienced internet marketer and systems analyst and holds two degrees in business management and computer engineering. She has held positions as a Business Development/Marketing Specialist, Business Analyst, Systems Engineer, and Project Manager, with international work in private and government agencies as well as non-profit organizations. “When I learned about LFFAC, I was immediately interested, and I knew that this would be an opportunity to help cats and give back to the community.”
