Heather is a results-oriented attorney with proven in-house experience. She is adept at advising companies offering innovative financial products on how to comply with lending, real estate, and consumer protection statutes--particularly companies developing products that provide consumers with alternatives to debt and unique home financing solutions. She helps clients achieve growth goals in supporting brand, sales and partnership teams on commercial and marketing initiatives. She also has experience in risk management, including defending litigation and responding to government inquiries and audits from both state and federal agencies.

Heather joined Scale in October 2019, and has been instrumental in the firm's growth including recruiting, attorney onboarding, client onboarding, and operations. She now develops and executes on Scale's strategic initiatives, such as the annual CLE Day, setting of hourly rates and alternative fee structures, and attorney business development initiatives. Scale's remote first model enables Heather to live in rural Washington state, where she enjoys hiking, fishing, and sauna in the great Pacific Northwest.
