Heather Sauer

Human Resources Manager
Michigan, Traverse City | HR Management Team

I am a Senior Human Resource Manager for the Northwest Michigan Region. In addition to my role as direct Human Resource support for AccessPoint clients, I also oversee Human Resource teams in the Traverse City and Grand Rapids offices. I am responsible for training and employee development, including cross-functional support collaborating with all AccessPoint departments to ensure internal and external customers receive professional recommendations, direction, tools, and support.

I am passionate about my industry and I am always continuing my education by attending seminars and being a member of the Traverse City Area Human Resource Association.

Prior to my role at AccessPoint, I worked for 10 years in retail management while obtaining my Bachelor’s and Master’s in Business Administration from Northwood University.

Outside of AccessPoint, I enjoy spending time with my family in Traverse City, enjoying Lake Michigan beaches, and community events.

Favorite Quote:

“One day at a time- this is enough. Do not look back and grieve over the past, for it is gone; and do not be troubled about the future, for it has not yet come. Live in the present, and make it so beautiful that it will be worth remembering.” – Ida Scott Taylor.
