Heather DiPrato, Publisher
Yardley Living & Newtown Neighbors Magazines
At the end of 2016, I was at a crossroads in my career. After more than 25 years as a senior-level executive handling digital, print, and social media for hundreds of top clients, and sacraficing time with family with traveling across the US and Canada for conventions and client meetings, I dreamed of a life with a career closer to home.
In 2017, I started Yardley Living with my husband, Jim. We are both creative and enjoyed developing a community and family-oriented publication for our neighbors in Lower Makefield and Yardley. People loved it, and soon sponsors began asking for a Newtown version. We launched Newtown Neighbors, serving Upper Makefield, Wrightstown, and Newtown in early 2019.
Three years ago, we added digital and social media services, and have expanded our services to include Google Display, Facebook, Instagram, community sports marketing and more.
For more than 6 years, I've dedicated my life to the communities I serve. Whether sharing stories about interesting local people, helping businesses stand out in a competitive market, highlighting non-profits, or sharing all of the fun local events around us, I love strengthening the communities we serve.
Giving back is important to me, too. I serve on the boards of Experience Yardley and Newtown Business Association as well as being an active member of LeTip of Newtown. I volunteer for Yardley Harvest Day, Newtown Welcome Day, and a variety of other community events throughout the area every year.
If you know of a small business that wants to connect in our community, or have a great story you think I can highlight, please send me an email or reach out by phone!
