Hello and welcome! My name is Heather Stempka. I am a creative, energized, enthusiastic and compassionate person looking for a position that complements the skills and abilities to meet organizational objective and demands in a variety of settings.
As the creator of a nonprofit organization, I have found challenges to overcome but found it extremely rewarding. From filing the necessary paperwork to become a 501(c)(3) organization to co-running the day to day business details, I have found it to be the most rewarding accomplishment of my career.
I co-planed and facilitated all marketing promotions, programs, events, advocacy and fundraisers throughout the year and served as a link to the community to assist them in finding additional resources that they could benefit from.
Through the work I did with the organization, I have found that I have a deep passion working within the community, either meeting the needs of clients or working with other businesses and organizations. I enjoy networking and getting to know other people.
I have also learned that I enjoy social media and maintaining social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Linked-In, and YouTube for the organization. I also co-created materials for print including brochures, layout of a professional calendar that was the organization premier fundraiser, posters, and various publications materials. I developed the company’s newsletters and e-marketing through the use of Constant Contact. I also oversaw the organization and its mission, programs, products and services are consistently presented in a strong, positive image.
I also hold a Bachelors of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies from Liberty University with core cognates in Psychology, Business and Education. I feel that this combination of education and my experience me a well rounded individual and could allow me to be utilized in many areas of an organization.
From managing multiple deadlines and projects, to keeping up to date with new media and marketing outlets, my effective communication skills and result driven attitude have given me a solid business foundation. While being an effective self-starter, I am also a creative team player with an out-of-the-box approach. I understand the value of deadlines and goals and have a proven track record of creating effective plans and initiates to reach those. I am motivated, resourceful, and can be an asset to your team in a variety of ways.
