L-R (Heidi Howard, Kristin Greene, Laura Bauer)
I am the Public Affairs and Government Relations Director. I discovered at an early age a passion for the idea of developing policies that benefit the public. I now have over 25 years' experience that includes federal, state, and local lobbying, public policy development and analysis, regulatory issue research and resolution, media relations, crisis management and initiative campaigns. I particularly enjoy finding a solution to a client’s problem in the detail that requires deep dive research – the type that most people won’t bother with, but where the unique solutions lie. I can also recite the whole Fresh Prince of Bel Air theme song. Look out Will Smith...
I am a Public Affairs Officer for the Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office. Having grown up in the Prescott area and spending the past 10 years heavily involved in many facets of local Real Estate, Heidi’s interpersonal skills enhance YCSO’s effort to deliver up-to-date, relevant information to the community with energy and efficiency. You may not recognize me on the rare occasion I am without my daughter and dog - we are typically traveling as a pack - or what I playfully deem “The Circus”.
I am a Public Affairs Officer with 10 years military experience in the fields of photography, videography, journalism, media and public relations. I am a Thomas Jefferson award recipient for journalism, and my photos have been published internationally on book and magazine covers. I have the greatest respect for our law enforcement officers, and I am honored to be working for them. I love what I do, because I get to experience everyone else's job for a day, and I don't have to clean up afterward!
