Hi, I'm Heather, wellness writer and habits coach.
What I do for clients like you is reduce stress and overwhelm. I’ve been writing and researching health and behavior change topics for decades.
As a voracious reader, I love to learn about personal development and behavior change. My goal is to share strategies I learn with my clients directly, one person at a time.
Hey, just for the record, I’m not “Ms. Habit Perfection”. I’m a habits coach for dreamers and creatives. Almost everyone struggles to “do what they set out to do” at some point. The goal is improvement, not behaving like a robot.
Each one of us has the opportunity to become our own “habits whisperer.” To me, a habits whisperer is someone motivated by deep desires and loving kindness, rather than fear appeals and instant gratification.
Want to know how to do that? Give me a call. We are stronger when we reach out for support. You can do this. I’m here to help.
Both of my parents were teachers, so I have teaching and coaching in my blood. As a teen, I coached kids learning to swim. In college I coached journalism students at the campus radio station. After college, as a member of the Peace Corps, I served as a safe motherhood and child survival volunteer training local trainers and teaching new mothers about nutrition. At jobs in Washington, DC, I trained and mentored colleagues. I’ve taught university students and professionals in Missouri, Kansas, and Colorado about a variety of behavior-based topics.
In 2016 I decided to apply all this behavioral change knowledge to myself. Culminating the advice of many mentors and a super trainer, I lost over 40 pounds. People wanted to know what I did to lose weight, and I realized I had learned a process I wanted to share. So, I earned new coaching certifications and started “The Habits Whisperer” coaching business.
Today, my coaching tends to attract wellness entrepreneurs and creatives who want a plan to feel less overwhelmed in daily life.
Clients come to me to develop habits around:
- food / fitness
- clutter / organization
- money / entrepreneurship
- and more.
What habit would you like to make? Or break?

Fantastic results speak for themselves
