Winston-Salem, NC, US



My name is Heather Herrin and I have been fascinated by architecture since I was four years old.  I use to drag my mom to real estate openings every Sunday just so I could study the architecture.  I went on to the University of North Carolian Wilmington and fell in love with Park Planning and design.  I pursued an internship at the Maryland National Captial Park Planning Commision where I designed parks, playgrounds, fitness trails, skate parks and helped restore historical landmarks.  I also volunteered at the Winston-Salem Planning Department so I could learn more about the administration and inner workings of the Planing Department.  I Was employed at a Green Construction and Development Company that went out of business due to the economy and it has been difficult finding work.  I was a model employee that loves to work 15 hour days because there is nothing I am more passionate about.  If an employer would just give me a a chance I guarantee I would never let you or your orgaization down.
