Meet The NWIA Staff

Jill Wooster, Chief Executive Officer

Jill Wooster joined the organization as NWIA’s Chief Executive Officer in 2022.  She is pleased to be part of the NWIA and REALTOR family.

Jill grew up in Mapleton, Iowa, and has lived in Sioux City since 1995. She has an extensive background in organizational leadership, with previous roles at the Sioux City Journal, March of Dimes, 2011 Red Cross Tour of Homes Event Planner, American Heart Association, and as a Mobile Notary Signing Agent.

Outside the office, Jill is the proud parent of two adult daughters, who are both recent graduates of the University of Northern Iowa in Cedar Falls.

Heather Frigge, Assistant Executive Officer

Heather Frigge serves as the board’s Assistant Executive Officer. Heather has been with NWIA since January 2002 and does a tremendous job for the board each and every day. Those who know Heather will attest that her sense of humor is second to none, as is her willingness to go above and beyond for our NWIA members.

Heather has enjoyed serving in our community in many ways over the years. She has been a committee member for Siouxland Mental Health Center and was involved with the Siouxland Sleepout for over ten years.  Heather has also been an active member of the Elks Lodge, assisting with the Christmas basket committee.

Originally from California, Heather moved to Iowa in 1996. She has two great kids, and five incredibly wonderful grandchildren.  Heather recently purchased a motorcycle, and you’re likely to see her buzzing around town on it when the weather is nice.  She also enjoys cooking, both at home and at the office.  Yes, she’s been known to bring in an assortment of cooking gadgets to the office just to whip up a little home cooked lunch. Most weekends, you will find her hosting family and friends for a Sunday afternoon feast, which she affectionately refers to as “Linner”.

In 2020, Heather officially became an empty nester, and is now often busy searching for travel deals to take her to Colorado and California to visit her children. She loves finding great deals on short getaway trips to new locations, and is especially fond of making memories and experiencing travel with her family.
