Heloise, the premier lifestyle management expert, engages audiences around the country with her sage advice, great wit and Texas charm. Heloise is unquestionably the world’s most famous name in household advice. Heloise grew into her role as columnist at the knee of her legendary mother who began writing the first Hints from Heloise for the Honolulu Advertiser in 1959. She quickly learned how to tackle problems that are common to everyday households, and, while still in her teens, worked full time during summer vacations on the increasingly popular column. Although she had set out to teach math, she decided after graduating from Southwest Texas State University that writing Hints from Heloise was what she really wanted to do.
Heloise is a Contributing Editor of Good Housekeeping magazine and monthly columnist: Ask Heloise. Hints From Heloise runs seven days a week in more than 500 newspapers in the United States and internationally. She is also a frequent guest on many radio shows and appears on national TV including Late Show with David Letterman, Today Show, The View, CNN and local stations
Her home in San Antonio doubles as her base of operations. She has four full-time assistants who sort and file the thousands of hints received from her readers each month. Her staff helps research and test new housekeeping hints before they are suggested to Heloise's vast audience through her columns. When mail runs especially heavy (as it frequently does) the regular office staff is supplemented by as many as six part-time workers.
Heloise has also written eight books which have sold millions of copies. She is a contributing editor and writes a monthly column called The Heloise Helpline for Good Housekeeping magazine. A frequent guest on network and local talk shows, she is also a star attraction at conventions, fairs, and on the lecture circuit.
She devotes considerable time and energy on behalf of charitable organizations, making frequent appearances for the Shelter for Battered Women and the Lighthouse for the Blind. In 1991, the National Mental Health Association honored Heloise with its first Mental Health Mission Award for her outstanding contribution to mental health education of the public through her column.
