Heather 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.”
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.”
