Heather joined Amber Living in the spring of 2019 and has been undertaking a mix of work, involving office-based activities, undergoing training to Survey properties, going out to site and using her technical and creative skills to help clients find solutions to their needs. This is especially rewarding when working on home adaptations for clients with disabilities.
Whilst design is her passion, her earlier career in business administration gave her the skills for successful project management and account handling that continue to prove useful in her current role.
On several occasions, she has been involved in large scale projects to redevelop derelict buildings, like cinemas or churches, all over the UK and Ireland. This work felt particularly worthwhile as once the projects were completed they became hubs for the local community. For one such project, in Newport on the Isle of Wight, Heather won a conservation award, for the compassionate refurbishment of a redundant church into a public house.
Away from the office, Heather likes to spend time with her husband and her two teenage sons and enjoys long walks along the seaside or out in the countryside.
