A speaker, a New York Times bestselling author, a brand consultant, and both a Trivial Pursuit answer and a question on Jeopardy!
Heather B. Armstrong is widely acknowledged to be the most popular “mommy blogger” in the world. Her website dooce.com has several times been hailed as one of Time Magazine’s Most Essential Blogs and Forbes Magazine’s top 100 websites for women. She has more than 1.5 million followers on Twitter, and was named by Forbes Magazine as one of the 30 most influential women in media.
Heather is a pioneer in the world of online advertising. In the 17 years that she has been shaping the internet writing community, she’s worked to create targeted content for numerous global brands including Ford, Nintendo, and Clorox – and written a New York Times bestseller, “It Sucked and then I Cried: How I Had a Baby, a Breakdown, and a Much Needed Margarita.”
Heather has twice been invited to the White House to consult in an official Forum on Workplace Flexibility and is a highly sought-after speaker on topics that span social media, philanthropy, activism, and the ever elusive work-life balance. When she isn’t working with brands, writing on her website, or speaking to audiences at various events around the world, she’s probably spending time with her two lovely daughters and her insane dog, all who appear as vivid characters in her stories.
