Heather Buzo

Title: Senior Manager, Development


Before joining Make-A-Wish Southern Nevada: Born and raised in Northern California, I found a love for Make-A-Wish after one of my friends was diagnosed with cancer at a young age. After seeing the impact his wish had on his life, I decided to join Make-A-Wish’s Kids For Wish Kids program and throw an event benefiting Make-A-Wish for my senior project. After graduating high school and completing two years at a junior college, I transferred to UNLV and applied for an internship here at Make-A-Wish Southern Nevada. I have been granting wishes since 2009 and don’t think I will ever stop!

Education: Bachelor of Science in Hotel Administration with a major in Meetings and Event Management from University of Nevada, Las Vegas (LETS GO REBELS!)

About me: I am an optimistic and full-of-life, goal oriented and family first kind of girl. I enjoy an occasional brunch with my girlfriends, crossing things off my bucket list, reading quotes on Pinterest and traveling to new and exciting places. I LOVE my fur-baby Toby, believe in smiling and working hard. It’s said that I always believe something wonderful is about to happen!

Favorite thing about Make-A-Wish Southern Nevada: The lives that we get to touch – not only our Wish Kids, but the volunteers, families, donors and supporters. It’s truly amazing to see how one wish can change the lives of everyone involved.

My wish would be: To travel to Africa and help out in an orphanage 


The meaning of life is to find your gift.. The purpose of life is to give it away ”
