Open for Business: Creative Coaching

Fall 2019

| By: Britten, Casey

Inspiring others comes naturally for 24-year-old Heather Schroeder.

Heather Schroeder from Hilbert, Wisconsin, is a bit of a Renaissance woman, with a passion for painting, Asian culture, reading classic novels, writing and teaching.

Originally interested in studying computer animation and scriptwriting, Heather caught the entrepreneurship bug and found joy in helping kids.

In May 2019, she graduated with an Individualized Technical Studies degree in Educational Consulting. From there, she launched two businesses—Fire Tutoring and Level Up Mentoring—that help young students thrive. “Being able to help someone accomplish a goal makes me happy,” she says.

A two-time winner of the Fox Trap Pitch event, a student competition for aspiring entrepreneurs, Heather attributes her success to Fox Valley Tech. “FVTC taught me skills that I can use in my career and life.”
