For the majority of design Heather has accomplished, she has also written the copy. She also writes press releases, articles (for print and online), and anything else that needs a creative writing flair. Heather is an organized multi-tasker with a passion for success.
Heather began her education at Daytona Beach Community College (now known as Daytona State College). She was pre-med. She attended part-time for many years, on and off, then transferred to Brevard Community College. She changed her major to Graphic & Web Design and graduated Phi Theta Kappa in 1998.
In January of 2006, Heather decided to further her education. She began her next college adventure at the University of Tampa, majoring in Communications while concentrating on Advertising and Public Relations. Heather graduated in May of 2009. At graduation, she was awarded the prestigious Academic Award of Excellence. She graduated with the highest GPA in her major (out of 401 students). It is the first time the University of Tampa ever awarded this honor to a part-time, evening student. Heather was also third in the graduating class of 1007 students.
Always seeking education, Heather decided to acquire her Masters of Business Administration degree. She enrolled at the University of Phoenix in March of 2012. This accelerated program proved challenging. Heather excelled in the program and acquired her MBA in November of 2013.
Heather continues to advance her knowledge in marketing and design. She is always taking online courses, attending seminars, and learning from her peers.
