I had the greatest experience coaching with Heather, and I’m very particular about who I work with. Heather puts her all into it and it shows. She cares, she listens, she makes everything user friendly. When it comes to the work required to get results, Heather made it clear what needed to happen, the actions I needed to take, and provided a visual way for me to stay on top of everything...
