Speaker Biography:
A self-proclaimed “hintologist,” Heloise is a contributing editor and columnist for Good Housekeeping magazine and the syndicated columnist of "Hints for Heloise,” which appears in more than 500 newspapers worldwide. Heloise's mother, the original Heloise, created the "Hints from Heloise" column in the late '50s, and the current Heloise began helping her mother write the column as a teenager during her summer vacations. She took over the column after her mother's death in 1977 and has become the world's most beloved household adviser. She is the author of 11 books.
