While working on her high school yearbook, a teacher advised Heather, “You have to go into advertising,” and the bug was born. Heather found that her skill set and interest more closely aligned to public relations, writing and social media than advertising when she was studying at the University of Colorado – Boulder, but that small comment paved the way for her passion for communication.
Heather began her career with a local healthcare organization and moved to the agency side in 2006. Working in the fast-paced, fluid environment, Heather learned to love collaborative energy. Her years of integrated agency work taught Heather talents beyond the strict public relations practice. She began to hone her social media prowess in the early days of Twitter, back in 2007. Heather joined the Delta Dental team in 2012. What Heather loves most about working in social media is the fluidity of the communication media. Things change so quickly in social media, that if you rest on the success of yesterday, you’ll miss the opportunity of today. Heather enjoys spending her time enjoying the outdoors. Whether snowboarding, hiking or enjoying a walk with Stella her vizsla and Harper her Australian cattle dog mix, Heather enjoys spending time enjoying the fresh air.
