Heather Kuhns, CPD, CPT
Hello! I am driven by my professional mission statement: to use my skills, abilities, and experiences to help people grow personally and professionally to achieve their best self, to make an impact on our communities through building relationships that nurture our common goals of resiliency, inner strength, personal affirmation, and sound mental health. I came to DOL because I can fulfill every bit of that mission statement through work I can do within our organization and with our diverse partnerships.
I have worn many hats in my professional life: waitress, middle school Math and Science Educator, Resilience Trainer for Marine Corps Family Team Building, Family Readiness Officer for Marine Special Operations Regiment, Educational Consultant, Manager of Professional Services, Marketing Manager…now Chief Operating Officer (COO) for DOL as a Certified Project Director and Trainer. I hold a Masters in Education with a Training and Performance Improvement specialization. But these are only positions. Titles. Roles I have filled.
I am empathetic, driven to achieve, determined to meet my goals and objectives efficiently with measurable results. I have a family I care deeply about, and (COVID aside) a richly fulfilling outdoorsy lifestyle. I get excited when I encounter new problems to solve, because here I can exercise creativity and wonder. I am proud to be part of an organization that truly puts people first, with compassion and encouragement and exceptional training (Standards Have No Compromise)! I am here to help YOU, to push you to succeed where you didn’t think you would. I will use my experiences as a former military spouse, a civilian, a woman, a teacher, a trainer, a coach, a consultant, a project and program manager, a mother, an encourager, to be a galvanizing force for you.
Let me know where you want to go. Then let’s get there together.
Excited to speak with you soon!
