My name is Heather Fernandes and I am freelance Graphic Designer, Website Designer & Developer, Social Media Manager, Certified Google Adwords Marketer, Event Planner, Digital Marketing Consultant. I have a real passion for working with small businesses and non-profits – helping them to brand and connect them to their customers through strategic marketing.
To show my support for this part of the community, I annually donate a complete soup-to-nuts marketing package to a group that is making a difference in their sphere of influence. I am thrilled to give back to the community, assisting those who do so much to assist others.
