Heidi Garinger

director of client services

Columbus, Ohio is my hometown. I earned a Bachelor of Arts in Business from Muskingham University, and I’ve been in market research for more than 15 years.

I think market research is fascinating. I enjoy working with different clients, and I love that projects are ever changing.  Every one to two weeks brings on new topics and new challenges.

Outside of work I enjoy nerdy things like Lord of the Rings, Zelda, Nintendo, The X-Files and Harry Potter.  I like Sci-fi TV, and I love to read.  I LOVE vintage toys. I hoard un-opened Agent Scully figures. I also like taco trucking and food adventures.  I love to play tennis and am an avid runner, too.

Insights About Me:

  • If I had a super power, I would be a wizard. It’s not really a super power per se, but who wants to be a muggle??? 
  • It would be impossible for me to give up Mello Yello. It’s my addiction. 
  • Most people don’t know this, but I was born with a hole in my heart the size of a quarter.
  • I’m the oldest grandchild in my family. I took the youngest two to the midnight release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows 2 when they were 8 and 10. My mom made us Ravenclaw robes for us to wear, and we each brought our wands. Everyone loved getting their photos taken with the Ravenclaw family – we even made the local news!
