About Heather McMechan: 

 Heather McMechan is the COO–chief operating officer–of my family and a work-at-home mom. She has lived in Boca Raton, Florida and other surrounding South Florida areas for over 18 years. She also been a member of the Junior League Of Boca Raton for over 10 years and spent 2 years as the Parent Association President at her daughter’s school.

There was a pre-mommy life of high fashion and travel. She was a women’s apparel buyer for many years, which led her to become a personal shopper. Heather enjoyed working with her clients, making them look and feel special. Many of her clients and friends asked her for fashion advice, along with personal as well. She loved this aspect of her job.

Today she is a parent along with her husband raising 2 amazing kids, Heather saw this opportunity after moms began asking her for not only fashion advice, but other range of topics like: where to have a princess party, who colors your hair or where can I get a great birthday gift?

Much of the SCOOP she hshare comes from getting together with her fellow moms–married, single-parent, working, or stay-at-home–she realize we’re all searching for the same information about local fashion, food, events and other “mommy scoop” within Boca Raton, Delray Beach, and other South Florida areas. This is what inspired her to start “Local Mom Scoop.”

So, wearing her tummy hiding tee, skinny jeans, and her Tory Burch flip flops– Heather type away, sharing with you the LOCAL MOM SCOOP. For more info:;
