Heather is a Florida-native, raised in Manatee County. Having resided locally for over forty years, she has witnessed the area’s tremendous growth, recalling times before the installation of the I-75 corridor when the community was primarily rural and orange groves dominated the landscape. Entering the real estate profession was a natural progression for her. She grew up enamored with architecture and enjoyed going to her grandfather’s job sites, who was an architect and engineer practicing in Detroit. As a Realtor®, she believes in the value of relationships, follow-through, professionalism, and integrity.
Prior to real estate, Heather worked as a Compliance and Quality Control analyst for a Fortune 500 company. Her experience in navigating complex regulatory requirements and her skills in data gathering and statistical research enable her to provide her customers an accurate and comprehensive picture of a rapidly shifting market.
With strong ties to the community, Heather’s civic affiliations focus on the importance of education. She currently serves on the board of the Manatee County Library Foundation. She is also a member of Entre Nous, a women’s civic group with a long and storied local history that awards annual scholarships to graduating high school seniors. She is proud to be a past member of the Junior League of Manatee County, a member of the Sarasota Arts Council, and to have served on numerous local fundraising campaigns, including the South Florida Museum “Snooty Gala” and the Library Foundation planning committee that recently hosted world-renowned authors Stephen King and John Grisham.
Heather loves the “Old-Florida” feel of Parrish where she currently resides with her husband, Charles, and their daughter, Gabrielle. She is committed to a healthy lifestyle and spending time with friends and family.
