Heather is a member of the Health Care Department, concentrating her practice on medical malpractice. Prior to joining Marshall Dennehey, Heather spent six years at another defense firm defending physicians, nurses, health care providers and medical facilities against medical malpractice claims. She was involved in all aspects of a case, from the initial meeting through to the trial.

Heather has written several appellate briefs and argued multiple times before the Appellate Division, most notably in Flood v. Aluri-Vallabhaneni, 431 N.J. Super. 365 (App. Div. 2013). In this case, the Appellate Division recommended that the jury interrogatories for pre-existing injuries in New Jersey were recommended to be withdrawn and re-written in line with the jury interrogatories used in the Flood matter. In addition, Heather has assisted in obtaining numerous defense verdicts on behalf of her clients.       

Heather graduated from the University of Miami in Coral Gables, Florida, with a Bachelor's of Business Degree. She then went on to obtain a Master's Degree in Management with a focus in leadership from Nova Southeastern University, H. Wayne Huizenga School of Business & Entrepreneurship in Fort Lauderdale. Heather then attended Western Michigan University Cooley Law School, where she graduated with Distinction and received her juris doctor in 2008.
