The Go-Getter

Heather’s personality can be described in three words: get it done. Heather is known as being a strong and direct communicator. She flourishes most when her calendar is full and thrives off the energy and ambition of others. Aside from having a full calendar, she also has a full heart when it comes to her family. Growing up as an only child in a small town, Heather spent lots of quality time amidst her large extended family, one that spans many generations – including great grandparents, grandparents, aunts, and uncles.

Heather is an experienced principal in the firm’s Consumer and Industrial practices, with specialization for the operations, engineering, and supply chain functions. Finding the complexity of these spaces exciting and interesting, she brings both passion and expertise to her execution of C-suite and senior executive searches.

Heather’s rich experience includes two decades as an executive search professional, president, and operations leader. Before Acertitude, Heather spent seven years as an associate practice leader at a boutique executive search firm. Here, she focused on consumer, retail, industrial manufacturing, and PE/asset management.

Her earlier career was spent leading a training and development firm. She applies these same skills today to the coaching and development of Acertitude’s analysts and associates. She holds a B.S. from Guilford College in Business Management and Finance.

Heather has lived in North Carolina her entire life; she’s made a variety of locations across this state her home – and has lived in places like the mountains, the coastline, and in between. Outside of work, she enjoys walking her “crazy” silver lab Roxy, watching her son play one of many sports he loves like soccer, volleyball, tennis, or golf, or checking out a new CrossFit class. She also has a personal passion for reading whatever she can get her hands on about nutrition, health, and fitness.
