HeatherDaughtersHeather M. Daughters 38, Director of Client Services and Facilities Covington & Burling LLP, Washington, D.C. What she does: Daughters leads a team of 34 at the corporate law firm while managing a variety of complex conferences and events. How I got here: “I spent the first 10 years of my career in hospitality as director of catering and conference services at a local hotel. I then accepted a conference services manager position at a law firm in D.C. The next nine years I spent learning the innate processes and structures within law firms, which prepared me for my transition to this position.” Bragging rights: Since starting with Covington a year and a half ago, Daughters has earned two promotions. Currently working on: “I’m planning an amazing event in conjunction with an off-site conference next year in Florida. The dinner will be held in a well-preserved fort constructed in the 1840s.”
