Heather L. Whitley

I am a person who believes in passion. Finding it, embracing it, and following it. Since grade school, I have been passionate about writing, storytelling and journalism. It’s what led me to CNN more than 14 years ago. In my most recent role as Senior Producer of CNN’s Idea Lab, I have noticed another passion I possess. It’s one of innovation and creative thinking in business. Whether it’s through leading brainstorming exercises at our weekly Free Thinking Friday sessions or creating a grassroots company-wide Go Red for Women heart health initiative, there is a genuine excitement that I get from being involved in these brand building projects.What's YOUR passion?
