Heidi comes from an extensive business management background including a large paper crafting company. Her background in business management was perfectly suited to the roll she assumed when she and her husband helped start an economic development company in Idaho. She left that company to start a consultancy (Cochran Advisors) where she was the lead project manager. In addition to business management Heidi is a highly skilled forensic bookkeeper. While she has lived many places including Seattle, WA, Coeur d'Alene, ID and Herkimer, NY, she currently lives in Little Falls, NY.
