Hi Everyone! My name is Ana Hedberg and I’m the new Executive Director for the Allegan Conservation District. However, I’m not completely new to this organization. In 2001, I was hired as an assistant and I worked here for three great years. Fast forward eleven years later…and I’m back! I couldn’t be happier! I am originally from Brazil and I first came to this country to live in Otsego as a foreign exchange student. Later, I attended Western Michigan University where I earned my Bachelor of Science in Industrial Design. I now live in Allegan, I am married and our family has 3 children: Levi, Asher and Vanessa. Most of my career has been with non-profits, where I learned to advocate for their needs, write grants and bring exposure to the work these organizations accomplish. Now I am excited for this new journey ahead of me as the new Executive Director!
