New director has vision, steady hand

I would like to congratulate Heidi Jackson as the new executive director of the DOVE Project. Heidi has performed as interim executive director for the past several months and has more than surpassed the board of directors expectations. She brings a wealth of experience to the job, including several years as a board member, as well as serving as assistant to The DOVE Project’s previous executive director.

Clients, employees, and donors to the DOVE Project can look forward to a tenure marked by an unwavering commitment to DOVE’s mission, a long-term vision for the organization and a calm and steady hand for day-to-day operations.

— Chris Austin, President, DOVE Board of Directors
