  1. I was first drawn to Heather by the way she articulates and shares new HR and culture trends within the HR community and on Linkedin so freely. In person, I have experienced Heather to be generous with her time and knowledge transfer/sharing by making time for me when I needed it most and she certainly didn’t have to! She is professional, quick, reliable and authentic. Heather remains true to her word. I view Heather as a major asset at Rainforest, she has established herself as a key player within the business and clearly responsible for the high quality and visibility of the excellent team culture there. Heather and Fred the founder at Rainforest set an incredible example to all HR Leaders and Founders who are figuring out how best to organize their people within the organization. It is obvious to me how much they respect each other and it is so heart warming to see!

  2. Heather is one of the most energetic, intelligent, thoughtful, hard working individuals I have ever worked with. She is a model for all in her leadership and management style. She inspires, promotes, engages, educates, and cares about everyone at our 120+ person company. She is also incredibly strategic and forward thinking. While pushing us to consider new ideas and think ahead she is always cognizant of how change is perceived and is sure to listen, get buy-in, and manager the communication of any changes so team members feel informed and bought in. Her ability to delegate and encourage her team members to grow in their careers in genuine and inexhaustible. I’ve learned to be a better team member and leader from her than from nearly anyone in my career.
