Heather L.

Human Resources Manager

The path that led Heather to Moms In Motion was a windy one. Her first position in HR was for a large human services organization in Pennsylvania. She loved working for a company that advocated for people, from infants to elderly individuals, with disabilities. After leaving there, Heather went on to become a nurse and continue her love for helping people. After several years in nursing, she combined her passions to become a healthcare recruiter/coordinator. One day, she saw an ad for Moms In Motion and went to the website to learn more about the organization. After reading the mission and vision she knew this was the place for her! ACES (culture points) all the way! Heather and her husband have 3 grown children (2 boys and a girl) and a son they lost in 2021 after a battle with addiction. They also have 5 grandchildren (4 boys and 1 girl).

Debra S.

HR Generalist

Debbie is the mother of two adult children and currently resides in the Winchester, Frederick County area with her husband and two Cane Corso Rescues. She grew up in Loudoun County and the Shenandoah Valley has been her home for over 35 years. She comes from a large, close-knit family with five older brothers and enjoys gathering with her siblings, nieces, and nephews.

Most recently she had personal experience in finding the proper resources and help needed for an immediate family member she was caretaking for. Since her family member is now in a position for self-care, she has returned to full-time work. Along with her experience assisting her family member and her 30+ years in the Human Resources profession, this position will be a natural fit. In her free time, Debbie is involved with Cane Corso Rescue, volunteering for transportation and house visits for adoption applicants. She enjoys spending time with her children and granddaughter, as well as photography and thrifting for unique vintage and antique items.

Meredith C.

Administrative Assistant
Meredith has been a little bit of everywhere since she took on her first role as a part-time customer service representative shortly after graduating high school in 2008. Although she comes with over four years of clerical experience in the finance department of a furniture retail chain, this is her first position exclusively in human resources. After leaving the chain in 2018, she branched off as an independent contractor, specializing in audio transcription until she was referred for an opening at Moms. Their mission hit close to home. She had witnessed the challenges that come with navigating the Medicaid system ever since her mother became permanently disabled after being diagnosed with cancer in 2006, shortly followed by her brother when it was discovered he was suffering from a severe form of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder. She knows firsthand how important it is for those who need help to have access to the resources they need. She strongly believes that literacy of the system should not be a factor for people – everyone deserves quality of life.
