Watch as Colleen E. Heidinger takes you on a journey from Hollywood to Buffalo, from ambition to HOPE
Colleen returned to Buffalo during the summer of 2014 to join the Renaissance that has overtaken our Queen City. She has spent most of her career in the film and television industry in both New York City and Los Angeles running industry events, program marketing, client sponsorship and partnership development.
After fulfilling a life long dream of visiting Africa, she returned to LA, resigned from her role on the Special Events team at DreamWorks Animation and eagerly drove across the country back to her beloved home of Buffalo. After twelve years away, it was time to settle back close to family and find a role that directly allowed her to impact the rehabilitation, growth, and enhancement of our resurging community.
Colleen graduated from Babson College with a degree focused on
entrepreneurship. Her current role at 43North as Director of Events and Programming culminates her passions for event planning, entrepreneurship and the development of Buffalo.
