MS. HEATHER ZANE
Heather Zane is a USMCR spouse with two children, ages 3 and 5. She and her husband, Major Joseph Zane, have lived in Heidelberg, Germany; Stafford, VA; Iwakuni, Japan; and Alexandria, VA while her husband was on active duty. The Zanes’ eldest daughter was born in Okinawa, Japan and the youngest just outside Washington, DC. Heather Zane now lives close to her hometown in the metro Detroit area.
The military family has been a continuous source of joy, strength and inspiration over the years. While working as a Junior Technical Writer in the D.C. area or as a Readiness and Deployment Support Trainer with MCCS in Japan, she felt supported and heard. Later, as a stay-at-home new mom in Japan, she was overjoyed to have visits and a way to stay in-the-loop with community programs. The experience with the Family Readiness program was nothing short of extraordinary in Japan; in fact, some of her closest friendships came from getting involved.
Mrs. Zane’s husband is the Marine for Life, or M4L, representative in Michigan and has the unique perspective of hearing about talent scouting and job hunting from many retired and reservist Marines and families at M4L social events. She is ready to advocate for civilian career readiness, family programs, and quality healthcare for military families.
