Description of Duties
Smart, proactive, compassionate; Heather is a fantastic communicator who plans each move with the “big picture” in mind. Blessed with an internal compass and a gut instinct that is nearly always dead on, Heather has the rare ability to provide leadership and guidance without being overbearing or sacrificing creative freedom. She is the best over-the-shoulder art director our creative team has ever seen though!
Her experience as a mom has made her master of multi-tasking. She juggles multiple clients and projects simultaneously and effortlessly switches gears to handle the many different needs (and personalities) of our clients. With decades of parenting under her belt, Heather masterfully balances all things work and home. She conquers each obstacle she faces with finesse, never losing her head even during the most intense moments. Simply put: Heather gets it, and we’re SO glad she does.
When she is not jetting to and from client meetings, Rotary functions, and networking events with a Starbucks coffee in hand, Heather can be found on Barton Lake with family and friends. She enjoys kayaking and floating on her pontoon.
Her two adult children are pursuing careers locally after graduating from Western Michigan University and Northern Michigan University, respectively. Heather enjoys watching them both build a life and careers in Kalamazoo while giving back to our community. Visits with her "kids" are always a highlight.
