Virginia Noriega


"Being involved in a search at every phase allows me to become a partner to both clients and candidates and work toward the common goal of finding the right person for the right job."

Virginia supports searches in corporate communications and government affairs across a variety of industries, including nonprofit organizations, higher education institutions and major corporations. She also leads the firm’s partnership with The Plank Center for Leadership in Public Relations.

Prior to joining Heyman Associates, Virginia worked for the House of Representatives as a District Representative for a Member of Congress in New York, where she advocated on behalf of constituents in the areas of immigration, education, environment, housing and other related matters. Before that, Virginia worked during college in different customer service-oriented roles.

“Working in constituent services showed me how to connect ordinary people with their government. Through this experience, I learned that connecting people is the type of work I want to continue doing.”

Virginia received her Bachelor of Arts degree in law and society at American University in Washington, D.C. In her spare time, she enjoys reading books of all kinds (and welcomes suggestions); spending time with her precious Pomeranian, Cookie; staying current with what’s happening inside the Beltway; and exploring new cuisines.
