I left fixed income sales more than a decade ago to raise my 3 children and devote myself to volunteer work (local charities, schools, you name it). I’m told I have a lot of energy—here’s what I love to do with it: plan trips for my family, find a good deal, and show my children that a mother can work and raise a family. My husband encourages me every step of the way. When I can’t sleep (which is every night), I bake.

Mom of 3 with a background in design and publishing, Heather enjoys getting her creative juices flowing to promote Tips and Tips’ partners. After almost 20 years living in the Big Apple, she’s thrilled that Tips has launched in her home town, the Plum (Cleveland) where she “summers” every year. Some people summer in the Hamptons, some at the Cape…she summers in Cleveland. Want to brainstorm ideas to promote your business? Contact heatherzachariah@tipsfromtown.com

Former television commercial producer turned chronic volunteer with a penchant for decorating, I am capable of organizing a fundraiser, a girls weekend, or a camping trip for 50. As a mother of three boys, if my house is clean, and they have consumed one fruit or vegetable in the last 24 hours, it was a good day.
