Heather Matson is running for House District 38, which includes Ankeny and Saylorville. Matson is a long-time advocate, organizer, and public policy expert who looks forward to getting to know more of the district’s constituents during the campaign.

Matson has spent the last 16 years working and volunteering in public policy, advocacy and development. Raised in Rhode Island by politically independent parents, Heather has always approached problem-solving by seeking to find common ground while holding true to her progressive principles, understanding that good ideas can come from anywhere if you are willing to listen and learn.

Matson and her husband, Chris, moved from Washington, DC to Iowa in 2003 for Chris to attend medical school at Des Moines University. It didn’t take them long to fall in love with Iowa and decide to stay. They chose to build a home in the Prairie Trail neighborhood of Ankeny as a place to raise their children, Emma and Henry. Chris is a family practice physician at Broadlawns Medical Center in Des Moines. Heather has a Bachelor of Arts in government from Western New England College in Springfield, MA and a Master of Arts in Legislative Affairs from The George Washington University in Washington, D.C.
