Melissa Heideman - Top 10

1.When you hear the saying "be the change" what comes to your mind first?
My family is my pride and joy. They are by far my best accomplishment. No task is more challenging and rewarding as parenting my daughters, Isabella and Sophia. They keep me grounded and joyful. I also take great pride in my partnership in love and life with my husband, Dan.

2.How would you describe your husband?
I would have to say my hero and role model is Oprah Winfrey. She is living proof that a woman can succeed at anything. I had the opportunity to meet her a few years ago when I was chosen to be a guest on her show discussing work/life/balance.

3.If you could revisit one memory as a child in your mind, what would it be and why?
My dearest possession is the Master's Degree I earned from the University of Denver . This was an accomplishment that reflects my hard work to education. It allowed me to establish a career path and afforded me the opportunities with renowned companies like Johnson & Johnson and Boston Scientific.

4.How would someone describe you when you were in high school?
My beloved grandfather Smith nicknamed me Maggie at a very young age-short for Magpie. I have been a chatterbox since I could talk! I thoroughly enjoy people, engaging in conversation, and sharing stories and experiences. It makes me who I am!

5.If money did not matter.. what would you buy for your husband and why?
Fall is my all-time favorite time of the year. Both of my beautiful daughters are October babies and Colorado is so beautiful in the fall- the colors are breathtaking-Maple trees especially. I love the magic of the leaves turning and the spirit of the Halloween season!
