Heidi joined the firm after practicing law for 25 years in Missouri, with most of those years concentrating on special education law, school law, and employment law. She served as Assistant Commissioner for the Division of Special Education at the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education for just under 4 years and in that time was well known for her monthly live webinars with the field, sharing important information and guidance as well as answering live questions for school district administrators and staff on various topics. As assistant commissioner, her leadership promoted evidenced-based practices and focused on a shift from compliance to student performance. Heidi gained the respect and admiration of school district administrators across the state, state-wide organizations and associations, the regional professional development centers, as well as national organizations and associations; her reputation with the U.S. Department of Education was critical in her success in advocating for children and school districts in Missouri.

Prior to serving as Assistant Commissioner, Heidi served as Legal Counsel to the Division of Special Education for 16 years. During that time she provided support to the Division on special education legal issues and questions, as well as represented the three school programs operated by the Department: Missouri School for the Deaf, Missouri School for the Blind and Missouri Schools for Severely Disabled (previously SSSH). Representing these three school systems, with close to 1000 employees, provided Heidi with vast general school practice experience. Heidi frequently presented to school district staff and administrators on various topics throughout her years as Legal Counsel.

Heidi came to the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education with a six years of diverse experience practicing law; she spent four years in private practice in a small general practice law firm in Jefferson City, one year as an assistant public defender handling criminal cases in Cole County as well as other counties nearby, and upon graduation from law school received a year- long clerkship with the Honorable Andrew Jackson Higgins at the Missouri Supreme Court.
