Transition in the Development Department

We’re excited to let you know about a transition in the Development Department at Headwaters. Jodi Williams has received her real estate license and is moving out of professional development work and into real estate. Jodi will work with us for the next couple months to make a smooth and orderly transition for the organization, working jointly with Suzanne Murphy, who has joined the staff as Development Officer. Suzanne previously served on the Headwaters Board of Directors and Development Committee. We are thrilled to have Suzanne working with us in this new capacity and excited for Jodi in her new endeavor.
