Claudia Van den Heuvel
Claudia Van den Heuvel is a seasoned graphic designer and strategic communicator. With more than 12 years of experience in the creative field, she has worked on a diversity of projects from digital content to multimedia and print. As a former executive director for a small charity, Claudia also brings experience in not-for-profit management, social justice, and entrepreneurship to her role with The Natural Step Canada (TNS).
As one of the newest members of the TNS team, Claudia brings these experiences and talents to the digital storyteller position. She is responsible for producing a range of written and visual content on websites, social media, and marketing/communications materials.
A graduate of the graphic design and multimedia program at Algonquin College, Claudia also holds a Masters in Corporate Communications from the University of Ottawa. Interestingly enough, her Masters’ thesis was on the history and evolution of storytelling.
In her spare time, Claudia likes to learn new languages whether it be Dutch, French, or CSS, watch movies with her girlfriend, and break up neighbourhood cat fights (yes, she is an avid cat lover and will talk about cats for hours if you let her).
