Staff Profiles

You are here:

Heather Rowles is the Executive Director of the Multi-Agency Alliance for Children (MAAC). She has held this role since 2004 when she was brought on as the only full-time employee. She served on the MAAC Clinical Team from 1998-2004 prior to being selected as the Executive Director and has over 16 years of experience in Child Welfare. Since MAAC’s early days, the service population has tripled and Heather now manages a 35-member clinical and administrative support staff.

Heather and her team at MAAC strongly believe when we listen to youth and collaborate together, youth have a better chance. She strongly believes that youth should have a voice in their destiny. Nine non-profit behavioral healthcare providers are united to serve children and families through MAAC, with a scope of services ranging from assessments to intensive psychiatric care, adoptions to residential group homes, therapeutic foster care to maternity care, and much more. All of MAAC’s partner agencies believe in best practices for children and most have received national accreditation.

Through and with MAAC, Heather helps youth because she provides a forum to listen to what they need, from their point-of-view, as well as from the perspective of the adults in their lives. She cares about what happens to MAAC Youth and has known some of the them for over five years, watching them proudly as they make hard-fought and hard-earned progress in their lives.

Heather has a Master’s degree in Public Administration and a Bachelor's degree in Psychology. She has served on numerous Boards and committees including the Child Welfare Reform Council (appointed by Governor Deal in 2014), Teen Parent Connection, Embrace Operating Committee (appointed by Commissioner Walker in 2005), and the Child Placement Conference Committee and is a seasoned presenter/trainer at Child Welfare-related conferences around the United States.
