Dr. Heather Chadwick is an associate professor at the Hans A. Nielsen College of Education at Charleston Southern University. She is originally from Richmond, Kentucky.

Chadwick attended Army West Point and Eastern Kentucky as a Division I athlete for Women’s tennis. Her professional career extends through higher education, corporate business, and the U.S. Government.

Prior to joining CSU, Chadwick served as a financial advisor for Waddell and Reed in Lawton, Oklahoma. She was also a contract specialist, and accounting technician for the Department of Defense in Fort Sill, Oklahoma.

She made her initial entry into higher education as an instructor at Cameron University’s School of Business. She would later serve as an instructor of economics at the University of Maryland.

Chadwick moved out to Anaheim, California, and served 2 years at the Boeing Company, working in the Finance Department for Integrated Defense Systems. Her roles included Southern California Estimating System Compliance and Training Focal.

She would return to higher education, serving 3 years as the Study Abroad Program Manager at the United States Military Academy at West Point (New York), in the International Intellectual Development Division. She also served at West Point as an instructor and the Youth Sports Tennis Director. Later, she would go back into teaching as an adjunct professor for Creighton University for 5 years before joining Charleston Southern University’s faculty.

Chadwick’s dedication to student success led her and assistant professor, Dr. Boyce Smith, to create the Center for Personal Financial Management (CPFM) as a resource for students, faculty, alumni, and parents to be equipped with biblical principles of financial wisdom and money management.
The center hosts a team of current CSU student interns who go through peer-to-peer coaching training and learn how to provide financial counseling that students and their families can utilize by request, free of charge.

Your Purpose. Our Mission.

CSU is an uplifting and inspiring place to work because of our influence with the future leaders of America.
