Welcome New RTFH Staff!
We are pleased to introduce our new Grants and Contracts Manager, Heidi Kone.
Heidi comes to RTFH with over 20 years of business management experience that includes both for profit and nonprofit. For the last 10 years she has primarily managed grant and compliance departments for nonprofit agencies in San Diego County, including North County Health Services, Meals on Wheels San Diego County and most recently Jewish Family Service of San Diego. Prior to working in grants and compliance, she worked directly with refugee women and children resettling in San Diego County through the International Rescue Committee in City Heights. Heidi was so impacted by her experience at IRC, she decided to permanently leave her corporate career and begin a new career in the nonprofit space.
Heidi brings with her significant experience in strategic planning, program and resource development, technical writing, and project and team management. Heidi’s approach includes staying abreast of best practices, managing all relationships with sincerity and diplomacy, taking initiative, being inclusive, and managing heavy workloads through streamlining, organization and structure. Heidi has lived in San Diego since 2000 with her husband Derek, her son Aidan and her dog Angus. She loves hiking, being outdoors, traveling, and spending time with her family.
