Heather loves nothing more than a pen, blank piece of paper (and mother nature). Her best stories and strategies always start there. She believes something magical happens when your pen touches a blank page. So don't be surprised if it looks like she's got pages of chicken scratch when she’s working on your Brand Plan. You'll love the results. We promise! Speaking of results, she has helped shape big global brands among the likes of Visa and AT&T - along with regional favorites like The Naperville Area Chamber of Commerce. She is an award-winning writer and storyteller and has a knack for understanding just what your brand needs. Having worked at big global agencies and for big global brands she likes the intimacy of running a small brand boutique and getting to know what makes her clients, and their customers, tick. Juggling it all in a way that allows her to nurture her greatest story - her family. Husband Chris (who is an entrepreneurial megastar himself) and sons Sam and Owen - who pretty much think their mom is the coolest badass on the block for running her own brand business!
Stacy is a self-taught designer. Her brain naturally sees beautiful things and she can't help but bust them out into the world. A one time teacher, Stacy knows that design is meant to instruct as the silent ambassador to your brand. And her branding chops are impressive! She has designed for some of the biggest names in the business: Tiny Prints, Pepsi, Hillshire Brands, and Land of Nod to name a few. As one of Shutterfly's top selling designers, her designs capture the essence of a personal story and sales always follow. When she's not designing for her clients she is designing for her family. Stacy remodeled an old home in the Western Suburbs of Chicago and turned it into a chic, modern, California-style stunner, where she lives with her bestie of a husband, Perry - and her three greatest designs to date (her sons - Devon, Tyson and Parker). They couldn't be more proud of her badass design skills, business-style swagger and her “just freaking do it” attitude.
