The Buena Vista Chamber of Commerce is excited to introduce their new Executive Director, Heather Rupska. Heather will be officially starting with the Chamber this Friday, March 18, 2022.

Heather has extensive experience in communications and marketing, including serving as Secretary on the Executive Board of Directors for Veterans Life Center in Butner, NC and owning/operating a boutique real estate firm in Raleigh, NC. 

Heather has spent quite a bit of time in Buena Vista with her family for over 30 years. She now resides in Buena Vista, and enjoys outdoor activities including hiking, white water rafting, 4-wheeling in her Jeep, and exploring with husband (Andy) and 2 Australian Shepherds as well as reading, cooking and spending as much time as possible with her family.

“I am eager to share everything I love about working, playing and living in Buena Vista with community members and visitors. Buena Vista is truly a wonderful and welcoming place with something to do for everyone’s interest,” says Rupska.

Heather has several ideas to provide businesses networking, educational and marketing opportunities, and welcomes community members and business owners to share their ideas as well.

“My priority is to meet with business owners, community leaders and residents and learn what additional services they would like. I am truly honored to have the opportunity to serve the community and Chamber members and welcome new members to the Chamber,” continues Rupska.

She invites community members to email her at or call 719-395-6612 to arrange a time to meet.
