All Kinds of News for December 05, 2018
Lake House Academy is excited to welcome Heidi Strand as Executive Director. Heidi has worked for more than 25 years professionally creating successful programs and business models for traditional and special needs programs for children, adults and families.
Having worked as an executive director at New Vision Wilderness for several years, Heidi is excited to join the Lake House family. “There is a contagious energy with the team at Lake House”, Heidi said. “I asked a student at Lake House how the program is important to her and she said the big difference was that the staff at Lake House are there because they want to be. It’s not a job to them, but a family. That’s a huge draw for me as an executive director.”
“It’s a really impressionable age,” Heidi continues. “Parents are sending their young daughters to live away from home and that’s a big deal. It’s a transferable relationship and we work on helping our families trust us to care for their young children.”
Heidi has served on local Boards of Directors in Illinois, Michigan, Minnesota, and Wisconsin with Boys and Girls Clubs, Girl Scouts, and the American Camp Association. She has served on steering committees for the NATSAP Mid-West and various regional and national professional conferences. She is also a member and mentor of Evolving Women. When Heidi is not in her office she enjoys traveling, cooking for friends, planning community parades, and engaging in meaningful discussion and hearty laughs with her nephew and nieces.
