Meet Erin! 


October, 2020 

We are so excited to welcome our newest copywriter, Erin Heisick, to the team! She is an incredible writer and social media strategist. With her easy laugh, wit, and obsession with all things plants, there’s no cooler person to welcome to the team. 

Where did you grow up?

St. Cloud, Minnesota native.


Where did you attend school?

I attended the University of Wisconsin, Eau Claire, where I majored in creative writing, minored in multimedia communications, and worried about how I’d find a job with either of those on my resume. Apparently, I must have figured it out.


What are some of your past employment experiences?

I’ve worked at the same local farms every summer for the past seven years, so I know way more about growing potatoes and strawberries than I ever thought I would.


Who’s your favorite BadCat and why?

Our housecat, Sunny (A.K.A. Noodle, Mr. Boy, Whiney, Chumbles, or Mr. Sunshine when he’s being bad). He’s a very sweet lad who loves tummy rubs and being held. He also screams for attention constantly and tries to eat my plants. He understands the word “no,” but does that stop him? Absolutely not.


What’s your favorite genre?

Fantasy and adventure, for sure. Swords? Magic? Dragons? I don’t know what’s not to like.


When you’re not at BadCat, what can you be found doing?

I love being outside and bike a lot when it’s not 20 below. I’m a strong believer in creating art even if you suck at it, so I paint, embroider, and doodle with varying degrees of mediocrity. I’m also a bad-movie fanatic—the more poorly made, the better, especially if it’s horror. Besides that, I’m probably playing video games and copious amounts of Dungeons and Dragons or trying to reign in my incurable addiction to buying more houseplants.

Like what you read? BadCat is even better in person.
