Architect, founder

Heather holds a Bachelor of Science degree from the acclaimed Interior Architecture program at Arizona State University. After gaining industry experience, she founded Bloom Studio in Arizona, and then relocated the firm to the Denver metro area in 2010. Heather’s passion for excellence and creative solutions is evident in the firm’s extensive portfolio of work. She is directly involved in all projects, and is known to be a perfectionist. Her design solutions are economical, creative, and function-driven. Her design talents are widely recognized and have resulted in award-winning projects.

Away from work, Heather’s perfect day would be spent with her husband and daughters! Her favorite activities include running, biking, gardening, paddleboarding, hiking, and traveling the world.  Her dogs and pets bring a huge smile to her face – she’s never met a dog she didn’t think was adorable.
