Christie Heimbach

Executive Director

While studying food security in college, Christie cofounded 2 Seconds Or Less. It was in Zimbabwe that she discovered her passion for community development, and although she started undergrad as a theater major, she quickly applied to Teach For America with the hope that she’d soon understand the role educators play in transforming vulnerable communities. After 3 years of teaching English and Global Studies in rural North Carolina, she completed her Masters in Education Entrepreneurship through the University of Pennsylvania, where she focused on designing curriculum to help churches more healthily approach student mission experiences. When she’s not studying or grinding away at 2SOL, you may be able to find her on a long hike outside, shooting a wedding under her second business, cooking award winning buffalo chicken dip, or solving a Rubik’s cube in under a minute.
