Project Manager/ Process Engineer
ACCO Engineered Systems
Based out of the San Francisco Bay Area, Heather focuses on construction projects in the pharmaceutical/ biotech industry. These projects often have time critical schedules, multiple trades and phases, and require project turnover package (TOP) documents within 24 hours of mechanical completion. In addition to managing subcontractors and the crew working on HVAC, plumbing, high purity gas, drain, and process piping systems, Heather created and manages a TOP team that is able to reduce installation qualification (IQ) sign off time for the owner engineers.
Obtaining her BS in Chemical Engineering from San Jose State University, MBA from the Executive MBA program at Sacramento State, and having a background in construction from a childhood in the San Luis Obispo area really help Heather to be able to work with clients and understand their needs and concerns. She is also on the board of directors for the San Francisco/ Bay Area chapter of the International Society for Pharmaceutical Engineering (ISPE). She now calls Vallejo, CA her home.
