About Us


Heather Bowen Ray, Owner and Lead Consultant

Heather is a consultant and technical advisor for behavior-related health and wellness programs.

Heather's experience includes in-house and on-call work for advertising and communications agencies and stems from a 15+ year career in international community development based in Washington DC. She earned an MS in Marketing at Johns Hopkins University and a BS in Journalism from the University of Kansas. She has instructed university-level communications courses and has trained hundreds of professionals and university students. She contributes regularly to Thrive Global and is an active member of the International Social Marketing Association. Heather works and lives in Boulder, Colorado, where friends say she can be found climbing fourteeners with weights strapped to her ankles while harvesting quinoa.
