About Me

Hi, I’m Denise Heidel! I call Clemmons, NC home, and I love being a Carolina girl. I am married to a drummer named Wayne… I have a grown son named Charlie… Wayne and I share our home with a Labrador named Beth and three cats (Gable, Dwight, and Jim).

Those three cats are a job requirement because I’ve been a freelance writer for over 13 years. I also fulfill the second requirement of all writers: an exceptional enthusiasm for coffee! It’s never too late or too hot for a good cup of coffee!

Another fun fact about me—I have a strong, unwavering opinion about the Oxford Comma. Do not debate me on this. I am resolute in my complete love, devotion, and commitment to the Oxford Comma (see what I did there?). I cannot be swayed.

Which is a perfect segue to transition to my nerdy side. My business is called The Office Nerd Virtual Assistant, LLC. I am a Jill-of-all-Trades who loves working with small businesses. Spreadsheets and essays make me happy.

I wear a lot of hats, but first and foremost, I’m a Jesus girl. He means everything to me, and my daily blog, My Grace-Full Life, is based on my faith journey. As a recovered prodigal, I love to share God with others each morning.

Thank you for visiting! I look forward to hearing from you!
