Heather Noggle is the founder of Codistac and also an original software developer and one of the owners of Global Wizard. She works as an export compliance data expert as well as a master data integration consultant. When Heather is not building Codistac and Global Wizard, she stays busy as a church trumpet player, professional geek speak translator, cancer survivor support enthusiast, wife, and mother of two growing boys. In 1994 she graduated from Southwest Missouri State University, now known as Missouri State, with a BS in Communication Management and a minor in music. In 2000, Heather applied for a software engineering position that was supposed to last three months, but time and opportunity found it to be a 20-year position. She grew alongside the company, working on its software and processes until she had the opportunity to purchase Exits, Inc. in 2017. Heather and one of her colleagues, Jayme Untiedt, rose to the occasion, finalizing the purchase in 2018, thus beginning the journey of promoting and growing the expanded Global Wizard software and services. Never one to shy away from adversity, a trait she learned from her mother, Heather chooses to invoke her creative problem-solving skills to conquer any challenge interesting enough to require complex creative thought. Her Scrabble best is 487, which means she has mastered and deploys all of the approved two-letter words. She manages her business one challenge at a time, investing the time and energy to make Global Wizard a common name among global trade professionals. Nickname? Datahead.
