Heather has spent most of the last 20+ years in education management. A teacher by trade, she’s passionate about the education of students and professionals.

As a member of the CNYSME Board since 2001, she has focused her energy on the Programs and Education serving as the Chairperson for both committees along with two terms as President in addition to her role as the By-Laws Chairperson. Recently, she has turned over the reins and has moved into a  mentor role for the next generation of Board members. As a 40 under 40 recipient, she understands the importance for leadership opportunities for the Millennial generation.

She is grateful for all that the CNYSME organization has provided her over the years. Allowing her to meet and work with people outside of her industry, giving her professional experience she would not have been able to obtain within the College and helping her financially by providing a scholarship through CNYSME while she was working on her Masters in Higher Education. It has been such a positive experience all around and one that she likes to tell to anyone who is willing to listen!!

Long live CNYSME!!!!
