    "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!
