C-SUITE: Heather Avila, COO, Weight Watchers, Las Vegas

Updated January 16, 2018 - 12:38 pm

Q: What are you reading?

A: I need to have a little levity after a stressful day and I like to read about women who have found success. Right now I’m enjoying “The Last Black Unicorn” by Tiffany Haddish. It’s a great story of struggles and triumphs with parts that make me giggle.

Q: What is your favorite restaurant?

A: Being a true Weight Watchers member, I love to eat! It’s hard to choose just one favorite! One of my go-to places is Skinny Fats. They have a great menu for healthy options and delicious indulgences.

Q: Where do you like to take clients for dinner or lunch?

A: Because I need to keep track of my points, I like to go where I know I can order healthy without a hassle. Skinny Fats or Lazy Dog are always good bets.

Q: Where do you work out or play your favorite sport?

A: I like to hike on the mountain trails behind my home. Door to trail in 90 seconds! I love Las Vegas!

Q: How do you decompress after a pressing week?

A: The best part of my day is dinner with my family. It’s like hitting reset on a stressful day. Weekends are filled with hang-out time with my kids and — if I’m lucky — shopping with my husband!

Q: What’s the biggest challenge facing Las Vegas in the next five years?

A: Growth. I’m prepared for the tide that is starting to come in, but when the population ebbs again I worry about our ability to be resilient.
