Heidi began her career in Catholic publishing in 2005. She was most recently the editorial manager at Twenty-Third Publications/Bayard and has also served over the years as acquisitions editor, writer, and content curator for various Catholic print and digital publications. Before her work in religious publishing, Heidi served as faith formation director at parishes throughout the Twin Cities in Minnesota. She studied theology and English at the College of Saint Benedict, St. Joseph, Minnesota, and went on to earn a MA in theology with a concentration in Scripture from the University of Saint Thomas, St. Paul, Minnesota.

Alicia Wensmann, the new accounting and business manager, joined the Liturgical Press team at the beginning of August. Alicia graduated in 2008 from St. Cloud State University in Minnesota and attained her CPA license shortly thereafter. She practiced public accounting for five years, and then spent ten years as senior accountant, accounting manager, and then controller at a local construction company. By sharing her accounting and finance knowledge and experience, Alicia hopes to continue to make meaningful contributions in her new role at Liturgical Press.

“I am so pleased to welcome Heidi and Alicia to the team,” said Therese Ratliff, director of Liturgical Press. “The unfolding future of Catholic publishing offers exciting possibilities for our mission. Both Heidi and Alicia are vibrant, innovative professionals who join Liturgical Press in discovering new ways forward.”
