When she's not helping clients...

Heather loves to travel

Heather spent almost two decades living and working in Taiwan, Japan, and China after her and her husband received an opportunity to move across the world to assist in overseeing the design and construction of a multi-million-dollar office and manufacturing facility.

While overseas, she studied to receive her Master Certificate in Teaching English as a Foreign Language, and had the wonderful opportunity to teach adults English. Heather can also speak Mandarin at an elementary level.

Heather gives back and is involved in her community

Heather has always had a passion for sports and volunteered as an assistant soccer coach. She was also a head girls basketball coach for middle school and high school while overseas.

Heather is a certified interior designer by the Council for Interior Design Qualification, and a professional member of the International Interior Design Association, as well as a member of the Connecticut River Valley Chamber of Commerce, West Hartford Chamber of Commerce, a Board member for the Glastonbury Education Foundation and CREW CT.

Heather loves her family


Heather loves spending as much time with her husband and children as possible. While the weekends can be hectic with the children's activities, she wouldn't have it any other way!
