About Heather


My name is Heather Whelpley and I am a facilitator, writer, speaker, coach, photographer, and general lover of life.  I have been working in corporate human resources for the past ten years and I’m currently transitioning to entrepreneurship. My blog is focused on experiences and reflections that arise during this journey to running my own business – and on life in general!

My goal is to help individuals, teams, and organizations reach their fullest potential. I facilitate keynote addresses and workshops on a variety of topics related to this goal, including increasing your impact through alignment to values, skills, and relationships, mindfulness and self-awareness, and maximizing on-the-job development. I can also work with you to design training and processes customized to your organization and provide one-on-one coaching to leaders.

I have a master’s degree in Human Resource Development from the University of Minnesota and extensive global experience, including living and working Australia and Latin America. I am currently working on my first book on maximizing learning during development experiences.
