Meet the Team

Heather Brady
Co-Founder and Area Developer
Berks & Lancaster County, PA
Heather is a community driven "dot connector" who discovered her passion for locally owned businesses during her career in National Advertising. Obviously shopping, eating, and playing local helps our local economy significantly more than when we make the same purchases at national chains. But the real beauty of locally owned businesses is the passion and stories behind the business owners. Heather absolutely loves connecting the dots between these local business owners and the local charities in Berks & Lancaster Counties in PA. "There's always events bringing these two amazing sectors together, but there's never been a medium dedicated to their mutual success and on-going community impact... until now!" Going mobile is the future, but at the same time no one wants 100 individual local business apps on their phone. Do It Local enables local businesses and local organizations to unify in one easy to use mobile app! Heather is also a monthly contributor for the Reading Magazine.

Carol moved to Durham in January 2015 after a successful career in Human Resources consulting in Southeastern Pennsylvania. During her time in PA, she also served in leadership roles on non-profit boards and volunteered to work on fundraising projects and committees.
