Heather Wright Schlichting

I’m always looking for the next great story to tell. As a PR pro and hired pen, I have more than 15 years combined corporate PR and agency experience working with diverse cultures to diagnose organizational/employee issues and create/design thoughtful campaigns to improve customer relations and drive results. By effectively leveraging the strengths of online, print, video and live events, I’m able to meet the needs of the message for both internal and external audiences.

I began my career in the hotel industry managing corporate meetings and social fundraisers and later my career evolved into managing communications, social media and website strategies for companies like Searle Pharmaceuticals and Deloitte Consulting. I have a bachelor’s degree from Bradley University in Public Relations and a master’s degree in Organizational Leadership from Northcentral University. 

I love connecting the dots by collaborating with graphic designers, copywriters or web designers whether through the launch of a global solo flight to promote women in aviation, a rock-n-roll employee engagement campaign, or a social media initiative to share the educational triumphs of graduate students. My journey has been unique and inspired by my partnerships with a vast variety of organizations.
