She currently serves as Global Labor & Employment Counsel, advising her company’s leaders on relevant laws and compliance strategies while meeting business objectives. Heidi resides on Golden Lake in Summit with her husband Rob. Together, they have three grown children and enjoy time on the lake and golfing.

Anita Rodriguez Cordero joins the WCCF Board with 30 years of for-profit and nonprofit organization experience, half of which was spent in senior leadership positions. Now she is a leadership coach and principal of Knowing Deeper, Coaching and Consulting, LLC. As Carroll University alumna and a resident of Delafield since 1994, Anita’s pride in Waukesha County drives her enthusiasm to serve on the WCCF board. In her free time, Anita enjoys meaningful conversations over homemade meals with her friends.

As the Vice President Engineering & Digital Product Management at Northwestern Mutual, Matt Sauer adds his digital expertise to the WCCF Board. Matt is heavily involved in the arts and is a former board member of the Milwaukee Youth Symphony Orchestra (MYSO). He shares his passion for the arts by playing trumpet in the University Community Orchestra at UW-Milwaukee. Married to his wife Betsy, the couple have three children and have lived in Waukesha County since the early 90’s.

“Our Board of Directors is a dedicated group of community leaders committed to Waukesha County,” said Melissa Baxter, President of the Waukesha County Community Foundation.

“Throughout our nearly 25-year history, we have been fortunate to benefit from the expertise of so many individuals who are willing to share their time and talent with the Foundation.”
