Charter Management Director | US
Heather is a 3rd generation native Floridian, so naturally she has always had a strong connection with the ocean and the sunshine. She grew up in South Florida playing competitive sports, rooting for her beloved Miami Dolphins, and scuba diving with friends and family. Heather attended the University of Florida where she received her Bachelors Degree in Telecommunications. Her passion for travel landed her a job with the United States Army as a Logistics Management Specialist, where she lived in various states such as Virginia, Texas, North Carolina and California.
Ultimately, Heather returned to Florida to pursue a new adventure. Eager to combine her love for travel and the ocean she entered the yachting industry in 2008. She spent 3 years working and living in yachting’s most popular charter destinations, St. Maarten, Ft. Lauderdale, and Newport, RI as an Assistant Sales and Charter Broker with IYC. Heather later went on to establish and build a Charter Management Fleet at a leading brokerage firm in S. Florida where she managed an array of yachts worldwide. Now, Heather is thrilled to rejoin the IYC Team. She is pleased to be working with a team of professionals whose principles are in line with her own: honesty, integrity and hard work. Heather’s friendly disposition, positive attitude and determination make her a great addition to IYC!
