Project Coordinator

Heather is the Project Coordinator for Duluth Moms Blog, working with sponsors to write about best experiences and items the Northland has to offer. She’s married to Matt and has two daughters, Cecilia (5) and Josephine (2). When she’s not writing blog guides, she spends more time filling out her weekly planner than she does actually accomplishing her goals. She’s a classic introvert, but has spent her adulthood learning how to step out of her comfort zone to enjoy the company of her friends and family, especially if there’s plenty of food and drink involved.

Event Sales, Guides, + Sponsorship Coordinator

Sarah is a transplant from down South until she returned back to where her own parents were raised. After graduating from Regency Beauty Institute about 10 years ago, she works as a Hairstylist passionately beautifying the city of Duluth (one person at a time) where she is now planting her roots with her husband, daughter Ara (age 3), and son Orion (almost 1). You will mostly find her family outdoors no matter what season it is, chasing both sunrises in their backyard and sunsets throughout the city sporting oversized sunglasses, and a giant mug of coffee in hand.
