Heather Hatlo Porter

Chief Communications Officer

Chegg, Inc.

San Francisco Bay Area

Heather is Chegg’s Chief Communications Officer, leading all internal and external communications efforts for the company. Previously, as VP of Marketing, she was responsible for building Chegg’s brand narrative, creating innovative campaigns with major influencers, and spearheading cause-marketing efforts. Heather’s passion for Chegg’s mission, and her work with education-focused non-profits, inspired her to help launch the Chegg Foundation in 2013, where she was the President of the Board of Directors during the six years the Foundation remained active. She recently oversaw the transition of the Chegg Foundation to Chegg.org, where she now sits on the Advisory Board. Chegg.org is the new social impact, grant-giving and advocacy arm of Chegg, which has elevated the student voice through policy efforts such as the “Unlocking The American Dream” student debt policy report. Heather is deeply passionate about her family and community. When she is not focused on putting students first at Chegg, she is focused on her own little students, her two sons. Outside the office she can be found volunteering with local non-profits, serving on the board of her sons’ elementary school, or cheering at the ice rink for her kids as a devoted hockey mom.
