Brenna Heller

Philanthropy Associate

Brenna and her family relocated to Salt Lake City in May of 2020 after calling Southwest Ohio home for the majority of their life.  The natural beauty and cultural vitality of the area prompted the cross country move.  

Brenna is committed to public service; she served as a board member on her local Community Foundation in Ohio, as well as the Community Building Institute. As part of the Middletown Community Foundation, she was an integral member of the Grant Distribution and Scholarship Committee.  She is passionate about driving impactful change in her community and engaging donors in causes which matter most to them.

Prior to joining CFU, Brenna and her husband owned small animal veterinary hospitals in southwest Ohio for approximately two decades.  She holds a Bachelor's Degree in International Studies / Spanish from Miami University in Oxford, Ohio.  She received a Juris Doctorate Degree from Ohio State University College of Law.  

Personally, she resides in Salt Lake City with her husband of 20+ years, three children, and a menagerie of pets - ranging from furry, feathered to scaly. She enjoys outdoor activities with her family, group fitness classes, and supporting live theater and the arts.
