Heather is currently working in-house for an AmLaw 200 firm.  She created an award-wining podcast series for Polsinelli and produced a documentary about a woman legal trailblazer that is playing on PBS stations across the country, film festivals and law schools. In 2018, the Legal Marketing Association, Kansas City Chapter, asked her to serve on the board which works with the best and the brightest marketers to help attorneys in Kansas City drive business.

As a television news anchor and reporter, Heather has covered trials in various markets including Kansas City, and has interviewed countless politicians, movers and shakers, and celebrities. Her most thrilling legal interview? Years after Charles Manson was put away, Heather interviewed Vincent Bugliosi, the prosecutor in the Tate-LaBianca murders. Heather was on the air as a Fox4 New anchor the morning of 9-11. “It still gives me chills today when people approach me saying I broke the news to them.”

For more than ten years, Heather advised the Skywalk Memorial Foundation (SMF) on PR matters. The SMF, made up of Kansas City attorneys and a police officer, worked together to build a memorial to honor the survivors and victims of the Hyatt Hotel skywalks collapse in 1981. “It was an honor to help this group realize its goal for the families who wanted a tribute to those they lost and those who responded, and a place of reflection.”

Heather is a Kansas City native who loves the Royals, the Kauffman Center, Blues music and the city’s endless number of BBQ joints. A self-described “news junkie,” Heather understands how current events impact business.
