Heather Lowe


Arlington, Texas


Heather joined the ARC team in February 2024, bringing with her more than 20 years of nonprofit leadership experience. Her early career was spent at the Fort Worth Zoo where she worked in a variety of departments that included animal nutrition, conservation, and development. During her time there, Heather was a part of the creation and growth of several species conservation organizations including the Turtle Survival Alliance, where she was Program Manager for seven years during the organization’s formation and rapid expansion. More recently, Heather worked in family homelessness, leading alliance-building initiatives and advocating for policy change. Then, as a nonprofit consultant, she gained invaluable experience in strategic planning and fundraising, which she is happy to bring back to the field of conservation where her passion lies. A two-time graduate of the University of Texas at Arlington, Heather holds both a Bachelor of Science in Biology and a Master of Social Work degree. She and her husband, Brian, call Arlington home and have two children. In her personal time, Heather chairs the Board of Directors for the Friends and Foundation of the Arlington Public Library and enjoys advocating for libraries as critical components of a thriving community.
