Beth and Patrick Heron have been steadfast supporters of LifeMoves since the first Benefit Breakfast they attended in 2013. Patrick, a Managing Partner at Frazier Healthcare, and Beth, a teacher at the Children and Family Institute, are Palo Alto residents with a commitment to philanthropy. After hearing LifeMoves client Sabrina speak about her mother’s sudden health issues and their unexpected homelessness, Beth and Patrick became deeply involved in LifeMoves.
Patrick joined the LifeMoves Board of Directors and Executive Committee; Beth planned and their family hosted Thanksgiving dinners for clients; and their daughter Margot spent her summer volunteering at LifeMoves Summer Adventure Camp.
The Herons recently advised LifeMoves that they intend to continue their incredible support through a legacy gift included in their estate plans. With this generous donation, the Herons will continue their promise to each other and their children to support the most vulnerable and needy residing in our backyard. LifeMoves is grateful for Beth and Patrick’s generosity over the last six years and for their legacy gift. Their thoughtful legacy will provide long-term support equipping LifeMoves to serve our neighbors in need.

Vance is an investor, commentator, and author of the #1 New York Times best seller Hillbilly Elegy: A Memoir of a Family and Culture in Crisis, described by the National Review as a “brilliant book” and by The Economist as “one of the most important” reads of 2016.

Raised by his working-class grandparents in Middletown, Ohio, Vance graduated from Middletown High School in 2003 and then immediately enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps. During his time in the Marines, he deployed to Iraq in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom.
When he finished his four-year enlistment, Vance enrolled at Ohio State University, where he studied political science and philosophy, and helped coordinate the university’s bipartisan voter education drive in 2008. After graduating from college, he studied at Yale Law School, where he worked at Yale’s Veterans Legal Services Clinic, providing free legal counsel to veterans of our nation’s wars in Vietnam and Iraq. Vance earned his law degree in 2013.
After a stint at a large corporate law firm, Vance moved to San Francisco to work in the technology industry. He serves as a principal at the leading Silicon Valley venture capital firm Mithril Capital, cofounded by Peter Thiel and Ajay Royan. As an investor, Vance has taken a special interest in the biotechnology industry and other transformative sectors of the economy.
In early 2017, Vance joined as a partner in AOL founder Steve Case’s venture capital company, Revolution LLC, which concentrates on bolstering entrepreneurship and disruptive, high-growth companies outside of the sphere of Silicon Valley. He also returned home to Ohio to found Our Ohio Renewal, a nonprofit organization dedicated to addressing the state’s opioid crisis and bringing high-quality employment and educational opportunities to Ohioans.
