Heather is Managing Director with Hartlepool based accountancy firm Waltons Clark Whitehill Limited. She trained as an accountant qualifying 1986 and joined Atkinson and Boyd in Belfast. She took a career break during the 80’s during which time she lived in Germany then in the late eighties joined Waltons Clark Whitehill, working her way up to partner. She has worked on a professional basis with charities for more than 20 years and became involved with TVCF through the Professional Services Group. After closer involvement with TVCF and its technical needs, she felt the charity would benefit from her professional skills and that she could bring something to the already strong board.
Heather likes to keep fit and enjoys a wide range of varied activities ranging from boot camp, circuits, boxing, weights etc to dancing, zumba, salsa and tap. She even manages to find time for walking and reading, with her guilty pleasure being a good murder mystery!
Heather’s favourite thing about the Tees Valley is the people – "they are welcoming, generous and committed, with a strong sense of community and a willingness to help others."
