I'm Heather Villa, a cartographer turned writer. Before I became a writer, I told stories with maps.


How does this benefit you? I help keep you on the map. 

My technical background in geographic information systems (GIS) allows me to turn complex data into understandable stories that guide people to the answers they need. 

​I delve below the surface to provide solutions. My specialties include educational and business content. 

Working as a business journalist taught me to ask the right questions. Being brave enough to ask difficult questions uncovers the real story.

For more than eight years, the solutions I’ve tailored for specific audiences have been featured in magazine articles, newspapers, web copy, books, marketing content, and educational products.

Looking for a writer who will find the stories your business needs to tell?
