Heidi Kerr-Schlaefer

My name is Heidi Kerr-Schlaefer, and I’m the Mayor of HeidiTown. For 16 years I have worked as a freelance writer and for almost a decade as the western destinations blogger at Mountain Living magazine’s The Heidi Guide. In addition, I have co-owned a furniture design and manufacturing company with my husband, Ryan Schlaefer, since 2004.

For the past 15 years, I have been traveling Colorado from corner to corner. HeidiTown has covered big fêtes such as Winter Carnival in Steamboat Springs and niche events like High Plains Snow Goose Festival in Lamar. HeidiTown’s covered brand new beer festivals such as San Juan Brewfest in Durango and small soirees like the Glenn Miller Swingfest in Fort Morgan.
