Bio: Heather Colwell fell in love with politics after interning with the Idaho Democratic Party in college. While earning degrees in sociology, political science, and philosophy, she also managed campaigns in the most contested legislative district in Idaho, successfully overturning and protecting seats in one of the most Republican states of the country. After earning her baccalaureate degrees from the University of Idaho, she went on to work in the Idaho House of Representatives, assisting Democratic legislators and connecting constituents to their government. For the last two years, she has managed several more campaigns, from city council races to state senate races. At Campaign Greenhouse, she hopes to help many more candidates build a vision and run campaigns that they are proud of.

Advice: You are about to embark on a new and exciting adventure that will challenge you and grow you in ways you can not imagine. My advice is to do your research, prioritize, and don’t try do everything yourself. Campaigning is democracy in action. Pull people into your vision and build a team. Your work is to create a vision worth following, show up, do your best, and walk your talk. When you show up, others will, too. Team work makes the dream work. In the wise words of Margaret Mead, “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”
