Wibke Rebecca Bettina Heymach (Vee)
Field Organizer, Southeast Michigan
While finishing her degree in North-American history and politics at Freie Universitaet Berlin, Vee was offered an internship with the Macomb Democratic Party and so began her love-affair with Michigan. She officially moved to Michigan in 2007 to complete her Masters degree in Industrial Relations at Wayne State University. She has worked on various campaigns during her time in the U.S., and later on worked for the Michigan House of Representatives. Always interested in Union political work, Vee worked for the UFCW’s Legislative and Political Office before joining Michigan LCV as a Mom’s Clean Air Force Organizer. Making sure the communities we live in and that our children are raised in a healthy and pollution free place is a high priority for Vee.
