Heather Morrow – Loeb & Loeb

About Heather

Heather started as a Word Processor over 27 years ago on Word 6. In VBA, she wrote a script called HACMAC that was used to clean up scanned/converted documents. It worked so well, Sherry Kappel had a hard time selling that law firm on DocXtools. Heather joined Loeb & Loeb LLP 23 years ago, as a trainer, and has worked her way up into a firm leadership role as the Director, Project Management and Trainer. She believes in the importance of maintaining a healthy document through the application of proper styles, number and other proper formatting.
