Meet the Team: Heather Schexnider

Heather Schexnider has been working with us at City Hall for three years as Clerk and Planning Assistant. An eclectic range of skills and interests speaks volumes about Heather: she’s certified in medical coding and billing, certified as a dental assistant, and is a licensed massage therapist. We’re left with just one question, what can’t Heather do?

The short answer: not much, and it shows. Whether it’s meeting and welcoming our new citizens of Carencro, assisting the Planning/Permits office, processing payments, or handling whatever comes her way on any given day, Heather gets things done!

A native of Upper Lafayette, Heather is a graduate of Northside High, and attended LSU Eunice and UL Lafayette. Her second job is being a single mom of two, ages 11 and 15, which we all know is a full-time job in and of itself! Even so, Heather is finding time to explore her interest in yoga. She credits a great support system of family, friends and co-workers for keeping her grounded, with a positive outlook.
