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, Fast Company, 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, brand voice strategy and editorial content. Personally, I have two dumb cats, a shopping problem, a tendency to spill things, and far too many tubes of red lipstick.
Writing & Blogging

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