Heather Gautschi is a lifestyle and family writer from Seattle, Washington. She began writing about babies and children ten years ago when she was helping her sister plan a baby shower on a budget. She quickly discovered that babies can be quite expensive, and finding ways to save without sacrificing quality is essential in raising healthy, happy kids. Five years ago when she became pregnant with her first child, her quest for the best deals on all things baby intensified. Heather loves to share her tips for raising happy, creative kids on a budget. When she isn't writing about lifestyle and family, you can find Heather acting on stages and screen, doing voiceover work, and playing with her two children and husband.
