All of us here at TechSoup deeply respect, value, and recommend her work."- Susan Tenby, Director, Online Community and Social Media, TechSoup.org
"In a world that seems to be overpopulated with social media experts, Heather is the real thing. Her passion and intuition have made her an invaluable resource to the nonprofit community and she makes social media accessible regardless of position or involvement. Over the years she has been instrumental in my understanding of the sector and continues to impress me with her knowledge and ability to communicate best practices."- Danielle Brigida, Digital Marketing Manager, National Wildlife Federation
"Heather is great. She has been a real change maker for Safe Kids. She presented a social media training to our affiliates at our annual conference in 2008 and as one of the most popular sessions, our affiliates are still talking about it - 60% of which now actively use social media. Whenever we have a question about social media we always return to Heather's blog Nonprofit Tech 2.0 for advice, and no doubt we will be regularly using her book too."- Line Storgaard-Conley, Director of Interactive Services, Safe Kids USA/Safe Kids Worldwide

"We use something we've learned from Heather almost daily. Her relentless research is only superseded by her passion to see nonprofits succeed.
