Heidi Balderree

Heidi was most recently the Community Engagement Director for Americans for Prosperity. In that role, her career revolved around recruiting and uniting concerned citizens who want to advance policies that will help people improve their lives. In addition to building coalitions and leading conservative education campaigns, she has worked to advance significant legislative reform, including school choice and income tax reduction.

Before joining Americans for Prosperity, Heidi was a business evaluator for the Graduate Business Ethics Team at Western Governors University. She is also a former private and public school educator with experience teaching Spanish and Japanese in grades 4 through 12.  Heidi met her husband, John, when he was her Japanese “sensei” at the Missionary Training Center. The two reconnected after her mission, and 28 years later, they have four children and a wonderful life in Saratoga Springs. Embracing the joy of service is a family theme, and Heidi has served alongside each of her children on humanitarian service trips to Peru, Belize, the Dominican Republic, and Costa Rica.
