OUR TEAM

The Mauldin Cultural Center is managed under the City of Mauldin’s Community Development Department. Check out the small team that makes this all possible!


mauldin_KK2Keira Heider, Cultural Center Director/Cultural Affairs Manager

Keira manages the artistic and cultural endeavors of the City of Mauldin. Her main role is overseeing the vision for the Mauldin Cultural Center and Outdoor Amphitheater, using both facilities as tools to benefit the City economically.

After receiving her Bachelor’s degree in Integrated Marketing Communications from Winthrop University, Keira spent her career planning, marketing, and managing a wide variety of events from gallery receptions and galas to conventions and festivals. She has managed and promoted events for youth development, animal welfare, and the culinary industry, but her heart is in the arts.

When she’s not working, you can find Keira enjoying time with her husband, daughter, friends, and family, vacationing on the water, exploring the local culinary scene, or putting her creative skills to use.

Jeannie handles marketing and graphic design for the City of Mauldin. Born and raised in Greenville, she moved away from the Upstate to attend Winthrop University, where she earned a BFA in Illustration. She enjoys finding ways to communicate ideas visually, whether through realistic drawings or abstract design.

Jeannie likes to spend time with her friends, family, and cats. She writes and draws her own comics and when she isn’t making comics, she’s reading them. She also loves supporting the performing arts in the Upstate, from local theatre to indie musicians and more.

Gina plans and coordinates the festival season at the Mauldin Cultural Center. Growing up in Mauldin, she moved to Seattle, Washington after graduating with a Bachelor’s degree in Sport and Entertainment Management from the University of South Carolina. While there, she spent her career planning and implementing corporate and social events, as well as concerts, fundraisers, and festivals. She is thrilled to be back in Mauldin and to be planning events for the community in which she was raised.

Gina enjoys spending time with her family, friends and cat, Samwise. She loves a good DIY project, being outdoors, listening to live music, and exploring new places around town.

He has worked on productions with Mill Town Players, Centre Stage, Younts Center for Performing Arts, SCCT, and Greenville Theatre. Tim directed the first Mauldin Youth Theatre program in 2017 and has been directing their productions ever since and is working to expand Mauldin’s theatre offerings.

In his spare time, Tim and his wife Sarah love to go on adventures with their six daughters. Swimming, hiking, visiting parks, and eating ice cream are among their favorite activities.
