She is also a graduate of AIFD flower design school and has a marketing degree from ASU and Phoenix College. Her designs have been featured in the Phoenix Homes Gardens Magazine, FrontDoors publication, American Dream, several news channels and TV shows. Her client list includes celebrities, high profile entertainers, business owners, professional athletes and coaches, resorts, residential and commercial properties. When it comes to Christmas design Heather has done it all.
