Heather Kotula, formerly the marketing coordinator for Access Innovations, has expanded her role to assume the duties of Director of Communications. Since starting at Access Innovations in 1995, Heather has succeeded admirably in each role she has taken on and, through her hard work and skill, has been integral to the growth of the business. This will continue as she oversees marketing and sales, and shepherds new initiatives to fruition.

Additionally, she has worked directly with clients to ensure customer satisfaction, has attended and participated in conferences and trade shows, and will continue to coordinate the annual Data Harmony Users Group (DHUG) meetings.
Heather earned her bachelor’s degree in foreign languages from the University of New Mexico and her MBA from New Mexico State University. When not organizing new marketing and sales initiatives, Heather enjoys various crafting activities, such as quilting and painting, as well as gourmet cooking, hiking, and spending time with her husband, daughter, and three dogs.
