Typically overdressed for the concrete lab and usually wearing teetery shoes that make the Safety Director cringe, Heather Monk is our brand warrior. With a long background in food and hospitality, the challenging transition to marketing for a construction engineering firm has been one she has overcome with relish. And mustard (admittedly terrible foodservice joke).
A perfectionist when it comes to all things brand related, Heather can be found agonizing over the size of a logo, lovingly scolding an engineer over the use of improper font, and enthusiastically telling the F&R story to win some of our firm’s largest and most well-known projects. Her role at F&R encompasses a motley assortment of responsibilities from proposal management, graphic design, and marketing collateral development to event planning, and business development strategy. To keep it all straight, Heather is an obsessive list maker and sometimes talks to herself in a colorful fashion (she thinks she is using her internal voice). Much like Goldilocks, and able to do her job from anywhere, she has experimented working in numerous F&R offices over her 12 year tenure and for now at least, Heather has found one that’s “just right” – F&R Crozet. In her spare time she enjoys travel to faraway places, crossword puzzles, cocktail hour(s), redecorating rooms in her house that have already been decorated and shredding punk anthems on the ukulele.
It isn’t always easy being the right brain in sea of lefties, but with a deep admiration for the scientists and engineers she works with, Heather makes it work with juvenile humor, passion, and total dedication to every single task.
