Zsa Zsa Heard is a native of LaGrange, Ga her desires are to innovate, transform, add value, exemplify resilience and empower people to reach their full potential in life. I believe all of us should play the role of a public servant because without serving we can’t truly reach our full potential in life. Serving is cardinal value of Zsa Zsa.  She attended Tuskegee University and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in social work. She attended Troy State University and obtained a master’s in counseling and Psychology. She has completed all coursework toward her PhD. She is also a Licensed Professional Counselor. Zsa Zsa recently graduated from the John F. Kennedy Executive Education Program from Harvard University and Rutgers State University, Executive Directors Education Program.

She is currently employed as the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) for the LaGrange Housing Authority. One of her goals as the CEO is to add value to the lives of the residents to create a platform that allows them to flourish and grow, provide services that innovate healthy lifestyles and transform the current housing into state of the art living conditions that innovates the community around the housing authority to get aboard and become a change agent to change the current infrastructure that does not display blight, and deconcentrate poverty.  Currently, the housing authority is completing two 9% Low Income Tax Credit deals, one 4% tax credit deal, and building two single family homes. The 4% deal is credited to the Kresge Foundation, and SouthFace for assisting in funding the deal to provide healthier living conditions for the residents. The two 9% deals are new construction. As the housing authority develops we are also investing in the lives of the residents by providing road maps and programs that lifts them up out of poverty; without changing the people the brick and mortar will not last.
