Heather is the founder of Project Facet, an open source software platform that helps newsrooms manage the collaborative editorial process. As a journalist and software developer she is completely fascinated with the intersection between journalism and technology and class. Her journalism career started in Alaska where she worked on the digital side of newspapers, public radio and public television. She took a brief break to level up as a programmer, teaching software engineering in San Francisco while starting Facet. Last year Heather was a John S. Knight Journalism Fellow at Stanford University working to help newsrooms create and manage effective, meaningful collaborative partnerships.
