Heather was born on September 24, 1972 and was raised in Manlius, NY. From a young age, she excelled at field hockey and academic pursuits, eventually receiving both undergraduate and graduate degrees from Cornell University. Heather had a successful career in marketing and communications at IBM and Accenture. Raising her family in Larchmont, NY, she enjoyed watching her children participate in many sports and other activities, and vacationing with family and friends in Lake Placid, NY.
A slow judge of fast horses, Heather had a sharp wit, a bright and infectious smile, and a generous spirit. She loved to laugh, have fun and always sought to put others at ease. Above all, she was a loving wife, mother, daughter, sister and friend. Heather was taken from us far too soon, and she will be dearly and greatly missed.
