For me, these three Cs are the key to success - connecting, collaborating and employing creativity. As I take the time to keenly listen to and hear the requirements of my clients, I gather the large and fine details to deliver strategic, creative advice and services that best suit their needs while building a solid relationship.

Heather's best fit

I work well with organizations of all sizes – small, medium or large who are interested in growing or promoting awareness of their work on the scale of their choosing while at the same time, further building vital relationships and a solid reputation.
