“We have a choice every day when we show up at work. We can choose to dial it in, or we can choose to be radically human, to use work as a means to move more deeply toward who we are. When we choose the latter path, we open ourselves to truly reaching our greatest potential as humans.”
Heather’s sweet spot is at the intersection of entrepreneurship, purpose, and human actualization.
She followed this narrative thread throughout her career, first as an indie bookstore owner, and then as a therapist and coach, before becoming an executive. At Etsy, she was SVP of Members and Community, building and leading Etsy’s member operations, community and policy teams in supporting Etsy’s 20 million sellers, and later worked in an executive role that focused on integrating values into Etsy’s business and culture. She is known as a highly skilled manager, with deep experience growing and scaling large operational teams and developing mindful leaders and cultures. She has a BA in English and an MA in Counseling Psychology.
Heather believes that building a great business or developing as a leader is equal parts art and science, metrics and intuition, idealism and pragmatism, and her coaching honors these dual aspects. She supports her clients in both addressing the operational and managerial aspects of growing a business and the deeply soulful work of discovering one’s identity as a leader.
