    "The most rewarding part of working for Express is I get to bring a high level of customer service by developing an in-depth understanding of client needs, providing qualified professionals, and tailoring managed service solutions which allow clients to focus on expanding their business and achieving their goals."

    Heather Cordova became the Franchise Partner of Express Chandler on July 1, 2022. She has an eye for talent and a strong desire to do her best. The entirety of her career has been in HR/Talent roles working with large, global organizations and start-ups as well as being a part of acquisitions/mergers and a company relaunch. She previously worked for Express from 1996 - 2007 but left to work for Wells Fargo as a recruiter and then moved into HR Management. As an HR Manager, she oversaw recruiting and training departments.

    Heather grew up in Portland, OR, and relocated to southern California to be in the mortgage lending hub. She relocated to Chandler, AZ, to take on the exciting opportunity of running the Express Chandler branch, which she says is a dream come true.

    Heather is a wonderful individual who makes the lives of everyone around her nicer, brighter, and more beautiful. From cooking and baking to arts and theatre, Heather enjoys learning new things and constantly seeks new learning opportunities. When she's not at work, she enjoys spending time with her family: her husband, Justin, their six daughters, Annesia, Estela, Danielle, Arianna, Lilliana, and Callie, as well as her four sisters and one brother. In addition, she has a Poodle/Schnauzer mix, Oliver, that is 12 years old and is the best lap dog!

    "My favorite part so far is connecting with the different people that come into the office and seeing the genuine passion my coworkers have to help them secure a new job. I am eager to start heading out to businesses, connecting with different people in our territory, and watching our relationships and business grow. I hope to be instrumental in Express Chandler's success in reaching Bronze status next year!"

    Sarah joined Express Employment Professionals in December 2022 as our office's Business Developer. Born and raised in the small border town of Yuma, Arizona, Having always lived in a warm climate, Sarah tends to find herself cold when the temperature is below 65 degrees. When Sarah turned 19, she and her then three-year-old son relocated to the Phoenix area to pursue better opportunities.

    "It's a satisfying feeling seeing something you've envisioned come to life."

    Sarah has been in sales for her entire working career. From being a make-up artist/aesthetician to selling new homes in real estate to going door-to-door selling office supplies. She enjoys setting goals for herself, figuring out ways to accomplish them, and then watching the business grow through her hard work and efforts. Having grown up very close to her grandmother, who taught her about authentic cooking, and her grandfather, who ran his own business, Sarah says that their influence is crucial to her becoming the woman she is today.

    Sarah enjoys spending time with her children, being near water, reading nonfiction literature, and watching true crime documentaries when she's not hard at work. She's also a big fan of most sports and loves to see teams play live whenever she gets a chance.
