Etta King Heisler
Etta was born and raised in Ann Arbor, and though she left briefly to attend Brandeis University in Waltham, MA and work in the Boston area, the Midwest has always been her true home. Her academic background and training is in education policy and nonprofit management. She has taught in summer camps, religious schools, preschools, afterschool programs, and adult education programs. She participated in a year-long community organizing fellowship in 2013-2014 and grassroots relational community building is at the core of her leadership style. She was the Director of Programs for Leslie Science & Nature Center and the Ann Arbor Hands-On Museum--organizations. When she is not working, she enjoys cooking food for her friends and family, eating chicken tenders and watching movies, singing folk music around the camp fire, and volunteering at Ele's Place.
