Heidi Richmond is Director of First Third Ministries at First Lutheran. She has been working at the church since 2013 in the area of children’s education, with her responsibilities now reaching to confirmation and youth.
Heidi was born and raised in Albany, Missouri. She attended the University of Missouri in Columbia, MO, (along with her husband, Brett-GO TIGERS!) and has a Bachelor of Journalism degree with a focus in advertising. Her early professional career was split between two advertising agencies in Kansas City, MO; Bernstein-Rein and Barkley Evergreen where she managed print production. With three sons at home, Heidi decided to focus on full-time motherhood in 2006.
In 2008, Brett, was presented with the opportunity to work for Fremont Health, so the family made the move to Nebraska. With the boys entering school at Clarmar Elementary they made instant connections with families and friends finding a church home at First Lutheran.
Outside of being a busy mom and church-life, Heidi teaches Spinning classes at the Fremont Family YMCA. She also enjoys attending her boys sporting events, volunteering with the United Way and the Fremont Health Foundation, running with her girlfriends and making trips to Missouri.
Heidi says, “The job at First Lutheran has been a perfect fit for this stage in my life. It gives me the opportunity to be creative and use my creative skills with kids while growing in faith alongside my family.”
