About Heidi Massey

Headshot-Pro-2nd Most Cropped-Late Fall 2014About Heidi Massey at CommunityConnective

Hi there! Perhaps we haven’t met. I’m Heidi Massey. CommunityConnective is my company. I describe myself as living at the juncture of nonprofits/businesses and technology. I am extremely passionate about creating connections for people, to each other and to new ideas. And I love creating those critically important connections for organizations to all kinds of strategy, tactics, and technology tools that help them with their important work. I’m also a really late-blooming tech geek. Thanks for visiting my website.

For 25 years, I worked at nonprofit organizations, building community engagement in educational, social, and issues-based programs. In 2009, when social media began to explode, I started to explore new ways of weaving connections and building community. Since then, I have worked with hundreds of organizations and businesses, both professionally and as a volunteer, to help them connect meaningfully with their audiences in the digital space and learn how to utilize the tools and technology best suited to their needs. I have also helped organizations increase their effectiveness by facilitating the creation of strategic plans that align their efforts (digital marketing, governance, and programmatic) with their mission and vision.

In my spare time, I love to hop on my bike and ride Chicago’s lake path, visit my local farmers market, or catch some sort of live show. I have a major sweet tooth, especially…well…really…all of it. And although I love and adore my three kids, I am truly thrilled to be an empty nester.

OK, your turn! Tell me more about you and how I might be able to help. Feel free to reach out to me if you think that we have something to discuss. If you are part of a business or nonprofit that needs to do better online, or if your organization seems to have lost its focus, or if you are convinced you can get more done with the right technology, give me a shout over on my contact page, and let’s get the conversation going.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Heidi Massey
