About the author
My name is Peri Heft and I am a proud Womensforum.com employee. I have many roles here including editorial management, starring in "The Social Buzz" video series, social media, marketing, site development, writing, and much more! I'm a southern girl from Atlanta and Dallas. After graduating from the University of Dayton with a degree in Marketing, I made my way to the hub of the midwest, Chicago! Here, I work at Womensforum.com, enjoy going to concerts, creating artwork, exploring the city, cleaning and organizing (yes, it's true!) and spending countless hours cooking up something fabulous!
