Testimonials

  • LA was one of the greatest things in my development as a leader and a new person in the Community. It challenged me about what I had assumed about myself and why I needed the others that were in this class with me! The number of times I have called on my classmates since my May graduation is too many to recall. EVERY one in that room I now consider leaders that will attack the issues that must be addressed!

  • Leadership Albany is among the most comprehensive community leadership training programs available from anywhere I have worked and lived. The curriculum provides a thorough education about community government, industry, services, business, and education. Program class members are a foundation of professional networking that fosters relationships throughout the community."

  • "Leadership Albany empowers relationships, networking and learning beyond the "typical" leadership courses. I was probably one of the few people that was "familiar" with each of subject days; but there was not one day that I did not walk away with greater understanding. This program provides a pathway to connect deeper in the community and provides fundamental skills that are transferable to any environment or any locale."

LA 2016 - MEET THE CLASS: HEIDI ROE

 | Published on 8/5/2015

Heidi Roe

Industrial Specialist, Maintenance Management Center - MCLB
 
 

For seven years, Heidi Roe has worked as an Industrial Specialist in the Maintenance Management Center at the Marine Corps Logistics Base.

“The thing that excites me the most about what I do is when I can  negotiate and portray our local Marine Depot Maintenance Command as the most capable repair facility amongst all of the other Department of Defense depot candidates,” says the mother of two daughters, Kirstin and Renee. When the local MDMC wins the nomination to be the designated source of repair for a particular weapon system, that’s the piece de resistance, she says.

“Not only does it keep our local workforce strong at the base, but it also instills confidence among our Marine warfighters, knowing they are getting the best quality product from their own Marine depot.”

A health enthusiast and native of the San Francisco Bay area, Heidi recently marked 30 years of marriage to her husband, Richard. In celebration, they’re planning a Riverboat Cruise in Europe.  Hopefully, there will be peanut butter on board.

“I absolutely love, love, love peanut butter,” she admits.  Heidi’s faith, family, living a healthy lifestyle, and practicing yoga round out her list of passions.
