CEO & Executive Coaching in


Prior to becoming a Vistage Chair, Heather worked as an executive in higher education for over fifteen years. She served as the President of a private university in Central Florida for twelve years before starting her career as an executive coach.

She has served on several community boards and gives her time to local non-profit organizations that support women in business and entrepreneurship. She recently served as the President of The Women’s Executive Council of Orlando, a non-profit that provides scholarships to low-income women attending a Central Florida university. She has been recognized for her contributions to the Central Florida community and is the recipient of the 2018 “Hats Off to Success Award” given by Dress for Success of Central Florida, the 2018 “Women’s Achievement Award” – Women’s Executive Council of Central Florida, a 2018 Nominee for the “Diversity Award” – Orlando Business Journal and the 2011 Recipient “Women to Watch”- Orlando Women’s Magazine.

She has presented on The Benefits of Continued Education for Veterans, Life as a Female Executive, The Benefits of Higher Education for Childcare Entrepreneurs and How to Facilitate Effective Meetings. She is a graduate of Leadership Seminole-Class 21 and Leadership Orlando-Class 93.

Heather believes that success in business can be attributed to two things, the ability to build and sustain positive relationships and the power of collaborative genius that comes from surrounding yourself with people who will challenge you with the tough questions.

When Heather is not working with the members in her Vistage group, she can be found teaching an online Business Leadership course for a private university or spending time with her husband enjoying the Florida outdoors. She is the proud grandmother of three and spends many evenings on Facetime.
