Oh, hi. I’m Heather!

From live stages to conference rooms to group text, I like to write and tell stories. I’m the former blogger of Terrible Twenties, and the proud author of essays and articles featured in the Los Angeles Times, Refinery29, Forbes, and of all the cool stuff you see on this website. Professionally, I have deep roots in search and social, with expertise in copywriting, communications strategy and content creation. Personally, I have two dumb cats, a shopping problem, a tendency to spill things, and far too many tubes of red lipstick.


I hope this synopsis was compelling enough to want to work with me.
Writing & Blogging

I have a decade of experience as a writer and blogger with a focus on career, personal finance, relationships, lifestyle, social media and advertising.

Copy & Branding

From social copy to brand messaging and positioning, I am a nimble copywriter, brand and director who creates big campaign moments with a few words.

Workshops & Courses

In addition to teaching blogging and copywriting courses, I am available for hire to lead corporate workshops, brainstorms and individual creative coaching.

Live Storytelling

I am a comedian, improviser, and storyteller who can frequently be seen hosting and performing in live shows around Los Angeles, mostly at the UCB Theater.


Writing Workshops & Coaching

A seasoned creative, writing and copywriting coach available for classes, one-on-one coaching, and corporate workshops.
