Heidi Howard, President
Heidi has over 17 years of experience with The Vigue Company, obtaining her Oregon Health and Life Insurance License in May 2000. Heidi graduated from Southwestern Oregon Community College in 1993 and attended Southern Oregon University in Ashland, OR, before returning home to North Bend. She spent the 5 years prior to starting her career in the insurance industry as Coordinator of Visitor Services at the Bay Area Chamber of Commerce.
Heidi worked alongside Dick Vigue for over 15 years, "learning the ropes" of the insurance business and developing close, trusting relationships with the employer groups that we represent. She took ownership of the company on July 1, 2015. She oversees and coordinates the renewals, service and support of our Group Benefit Plans as well as staying up-to-date on current Health Care Reform issues on a State and National level. Heidi also specializes in Medicare options.

She is an active member of the National Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors, the National Association of Health Underwriters and is appointed to the WOAH (Western Oregon Advanced Health) Board of Directors.
When Heidi is not in the office taking care of our clients' needs, you can find her at home with her family. She and her husband were born and raised in the Coos Bay/North Bend area and they, along with their three daughters, enjoy spending time outdoors, camping and exploring new places.
