Kim Johnson Heidemann is a native Iowan. Raised on a small family farm she gained a strong work ethic and learned that a healthy dose of common sense often saves the day. She has always had an interest in history and international places coupled with passion for politics and current events.
She studied history and political science at University of Iowa. While in college she attended a symposium in The Hauge, Netherlands that concentrated on International Negation and Conflict Resolution. A day hearing testimony at the Bosnian War Crimes Tribunal is what she credits with solidifying her career path to international relations. After graduating with a B.A. in history and minor in political science, Kim refined her fundraising skills by working in The Windy City at Lyric Opera of Chicago. Before long though she was back in Iowa, this time to attend Iowa State University. Working to engage the public in international relations was to become a high school teacher, she earned a degree in education with endorsements in world history, American history and American government. Looking for a new experience she found the right fit for her at the University of Westminster in London, England. While there, she attended the Diplomatic Academy of London for an M.A. in diplomatic studies. It was exactly what she was a looking for. Her classmates were mostly diplomats or children of diplomats. It was an education in and of itself.
Kim started at Iowa Sister States (ISS) within a year of returning to Iowa from Europe. She had not been at ISS long before realizing the potential the organization had. She delighted in creating projects and programs with international partners. The volunteers at ISS were invigorated by her passion and the organization began its climb to where it is now. Under Kim’s guidance, ISS has become a leader in Iowa for managing and understanding international relationships. And as she rightly should be, Kim is known as an expert in working with international partners. She has guided many Iowan organizations as they seek out their own way to connect with the international community.
