Founders & Team


Heidi Yarger

Editor in Chief and Co-Founder

Heidi puts the Spitfire in just about everything she does. She’s a designer and creative director of a collaborative studio known for innovative designs for the wedding, fashion, youth, and lifestyle markets. After building her design studio, then came love, marriage, and a couple of baby carriages. Her son Evan, and more recently, lil’ baby Noe provided the inspirations for her next adventure. Motherhood didn’t just change her life, it changed her work. In her role as SpitfireMom, Heidi’s decided to up the conversation about motherhood for creative mom entrepreneurs and for moms everywhere. Recognizing that the bi-weekly SpitfireMom features on her design blog were resonating in really big ways, she (with a newborn, no less!) launched SpitfireMom to create a place for moms just like her—fun, funny, creative, hard-working, multitasking gals with full plates and fuller hearts. Heidi lives in Denver, CO with her very tall, very nice husband and two toeheads. You can see all the pretty things she designs for other people here.
