Director of Development and Marketing
Bringing over four decades of experience in Human Resources, Management and Fundraising, Heather Stoner is a dynamic and active leader in the Tyler community. Heather started her career at just 16 years old and was instantly hooked. By the age of 20, she had opened her first boutique.
During those early years, she was quickly thrown into a world where she had to adapt and learn social skills that may not have come naturally for a farm girl. But she soon realized that learning is a life-long skill: in addition to our degrees that we work so hard for, real-world learning takes recognizing what you do not know, why it is important, and what you can do to change it.
Heather currently serves as the Director of Development and Marketing for East Texas Crisis Center, is an active board member of several local and national organizations and Leadership Tyler Graduate. She has been a featured guest speaker for events and interviewed entrepreneurs, leaders, and public figures and is eager to share her knowledge to help you make your rise to the top a much shorter journey!
