With twenty-plus years in the industry, she leads teams collaboratively from project acquisition through opening at NuovoRE’s properties, focusing on creating one-of-a-kind assets that provide long-term meaningful social and community impact at each location.
Heather’s hospitality career got its start at Troon Golf where she was responsible for the design and development of private and public golf clubs and spas across the United States. Having collaborated with Oz Architects while at Troon, Heather transitioned to lead their interior design division and project manage hotel projects including Mountain Shadows Resort, the renovation at Royal Palms, the historic Hermosa Inn, and the Kukui’ula Resort.
The recession of 2008 provided Heather the time to pursue a graduate degree in Construction Management with a focus on collaboration methodologies. She also had the opportunity to work for two leading construction companies in Phoenix. She returned to hospitality, managing interior design for several Park City resort residential projects, as well as Tommy Bahama retail and restaurant projects in Scottsdale and Waikiki. Following her passion for hotel projects, Heather took a position with Two Roads Hospitality Denver, which led to her current role at NuovoRE.
