Karin Heiman, Acting Executive Director

Karin has been with SERLC since the year of its inception and heads its environmental operations. She began her work with conservation easements in 1986 for The Nature Conservancy. Karin was born with a curiosity and fascination with nature which she has translated into her career. After working as an auto mechanic, professional dancer, and heavy duty construction worker, she returned to school at Warren Wilson College for a Bachelor of Art & Sciences Degree (1984) with a major in Environmental Studies (Botany Concentration) and minor in Biology. Since then she has performed environmental work for nearly every type of federal and state agency, including state Departments of Transportation, USDA, National Park Service, US Forest Service, US Fish & Wildlife Service, National Institute of Health, EPA, US Army COE, US Air Force, state Natural Heritage Programs, and numerous universities, land trusts and engineering firms. She is certified with the State of North Carolina as a Forest Stewardship Contractor. A resident of WNC since 1981, she is completing the family circle, since her great-great grandmother left NC by wagon train.
