Heather’s career began in marketing—first in real estate development and then in media and entertainment—where she was responsible for branding, design, and editorial content. Leveraging the deep expertise built over 15 years in marketing, she started, led, and grew a thriving design agency, where she managed a global virtual team. In these and future roles, she became known for her engagement management and customer-facing capabilities, eventually translating those skills into leading client relationships for Engaged Health Solutions and Co-Active Training Institute (CTI). At CTI, she was also trained and certified as a professional executive coach. Along this journey, Heather studied, practiced, and began working with clients on mediation, conflict resolution, and having conversations on race, diversity, equity, and inclusion.
