Heather Russell- Founder & CEO

Welcome and thank you for your interest in what NOVA Solutions LLC

can do for your organization.

"In my mind, a strong organization is like a three legged stool.  In this analogy, one leg of the stool is the business plan, the second leg represents the services offered and the third leg is community engagement – otherwise known as Development. An organization is dependent upon all three of these legs to be strong and on equal footing – because they are infinitely dependent upon each other for successfully meeting your mission."    Heather Russell

With more than 30 years of experience, Heather brings an extensive portfolio of development strategies to share with each of her clients. Heather’s nonprofit development experience spans from working with organizations who serve their constituents on a statewide basis to organizations who serve on a national and/or international basis.  Heather’s consulting approach begins with an open conversation about the vision, mission and financial goals of an organization and is continued through finding and applying development solutions to meet those aspirations. She assists her clients in managing their brand and how to convey their message, on multiple platforms, in a succinct and memorable manner. Her professional gratification only comes when she witnesses her client’s success of having moved their organization forward.

Prior to establishing NOVA Solutions LLC, Heather served as Director of Development for the Autism Treatment Centers of Texas; The George Washington University, Autism and Neurodevelopmental Disorders Initiative and United Service Organizations (USO). In addition, Heather has also served on several nonprofit leadership committees and national consortiums.

Heather holds a BA and Master in Education from the University of Arkansas.
