Heather Myklegard

Heather Myklegard, Washington, DC

Heather Myklegard has been working in sales and marketing for the last ten years. She started in the health and fitness industry and moved my way through corporate, and eventually nonprofit. Heather quickly saw the potential that social media had for reaching like-minded individuals in a timely manner and jumped in with both feet. She started her own digital marketing agency in 2012 and has been working with businesses on developing their brand and telling their story.

An Idaho Native, Heather has been living on the East Coast for the last 5 years. I have 3 children, a loving husband, and a sweet labradoodle. When I am not online creating content and writing, I enjoy spending time with my children, finding new and exotic restaurants with my husband, and traveling as a family.

We love her because: Well, were do we start? Heather has been a part of Femworking since almost the beginning, sticking by the company (and Kelley) through thick and thin – because she believes in what we’re about. She is smart, incredibly kind, funny, down-to-Earth, and is uh-maze-ing at social media management and engagement. Femworking would not be what it is without her influence, patience, and support.

Jennifer Andos

Jennifer Andos, Ashburn, VA

15 years ago Jennifer escaped the ad agency world in Chicagoland where she designed products and catalogs, art directed photo shoots, and produced and printed millions of copies of catalogs for Fortune 100 clients.  When Jennifer started her company Paperfish Creative, she knew she didn’t simply want to be a freelance graphic designer – she wanted to create an agency that had more depth and offered more services. She added web design, formed partnerships with photo studios for professional photography, and brought on board a web developer/computer programmer as a contract employee.

In August 2013 Jennifer relocated with her family to Ashburn, Virginia and is pleased to say that with the help of Femworking I now have several wonderful clients in Virginia AND Chicago!
