Your Marketing Professional

My name is Heather Annette Castner, and I am Your Marketing Professional!

I’m a Southern California native, who lives and works in Orange County. I received a M.B.A. with a focus in Marketing from California State University, Fullerton, have 10 years experience in the accounting and tax industry, and 5 years in operations working with information technology. I have experience with both professional and private projects, and have a growing portfolio.

I founded Your Advantage Marketing, because I believe that marketing for small businesses should be fun, and easy! I hate the idea of a one size fits all marketing plan, and my goal is to tailor a plan specifically to fit your business while delivering incredible value and real results!

So why did I decide to take on the daunting task of starting my own business?
I love marketing! I follow my passion to help you follow yours.

I sincerely hope we get the chance to work together.
