I attended Mt. Mercy University in Cedar Rapids, Iowa and then became licensed as a CPA. I retired from Vanguard Appraisals, Inc. after 36 years as the Corporate Treasurer and CFO.
My husband is Jim Heck and we have been married since 1992. Jim grew up in Cedar Rapids, was a Hall of Fame Basketball player, and was a home builder prior to retiring.
I now spend my time riding and showing my horses, baling hay and general maintenance of our small farm.
