Born: April 25th 1959 to Barbara and Donald Heaney in Madison Wisconsin. Both parents are attorneys. Barbara was one of the first 100 women to graduate from the University of Utah with a Law Degree. Donald is a former President of the Wisconsin Bar Association.

I grew up in Monona and Middleton, Wisconsin, graduating from Middleton High School in 1977. I graduated from UW Madison in 1981 with a BS in Zoology and from the UW Madison Graduate School of Business in 1985 with an MS in Management Information Systems. I have had a life-long interest and participation in music, first playing trumpet at age 10 and then guitar (classical, jazz, rock, blues, folk, funk, soul) at age 12.

Progressive politics, social justice, and perfecting democracy have been a lifelong interest. Growing up during the 1960s gave me a strong appreciation for the pursuit of peace, civil rights for all and justice for those without a voice. I am a strong advocate for reform of dysfunctional institutions of all types, but especially civic, private / corporate , and public sector. I am a firm believer in an active government role to create opportunities when the public fails to act, to regulate business to protect those who are too poor to be financially influential, and to provide a social safety net.

For the last 22 years I have worked in the field of institutional research at Madison Area Technical College. I have also simultaneously pursued varied musical projects and volunteered in support of various progressive causes.
