Her expertise also has been recognized with invitations to judge design contests. A world traveler who avoids tourist destinations in favor of horseback riding and camping in remote areas, Heidi's many skills include stilt-walking and welding.

She is also a playwright whose work has been produced in Philadelphia and New York. She earned a B.A. in Theater from Bryn Mawr College.
Georgette Klotz joined Hollister Creative in 2007. She is equally talented at website design and print design and has won national awards for both.
