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 served as a committee member for Siouxland Mental Health Center and has been very involved with the Siouxland Sleepout event to raise awareness of homelessness for over ten years. Heather is passionate about these causes, as demonstrated by not only personally choosing to sleep outside (in November) as a part of that event, but recruiting her family members to join her.
Heather also keeps busy as a member of the Elks Lodge, where she is involved with the Christmas basket committee and cooks up spaghetti each year for members and their families to enjoy while they pack the baskets that they distribute to over 300 food baskets to Siouxland families in December.
Originally from California, Heather moved to Iowa in 1996. She has one son Brian, one daughter Tyra, and four incredibly wonderful grandchildren: Christopher, Jordan, Isabelle and Cali. Heather 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”.
Now that her children are grown, Heather is taking the opportunity to find time for herself and has caught a serious case of the travel bug. She loves finding great deals on short getaway trips, and is especially fond of experiencing new states & cities with her children and grandchildren.
