real Heidi

Real Heidi is a no bullshit space I created to share REAL life stories through my podcast, blog and videos. I’ve met some truly amazing and inspirational people and can’t wait to share their stories with you! A place where you can come for a laugh, to feel inspired, be empowered, uplifted and even educated (OK I can’t guarantee I’ll educate you hehe, it just sounded good! But I’ll try ).

It’s also a safe place for you to write and share your stories (anonymous or not) so if you would like to contribute please visit the contact page we would love to hear and share your story with the world.

Who is Real Heidi?

I’m Heidi Lee Anderson. I grew up in Bathurst NSW and it was here that I learned to drink way too much and swear like sailor. I completed my Public Relations degree which I used to get my very first real job in PR and marketing in London. I’ve also managed bars and travelled the globe.

In 2010 I started in radio at Ace Radio Network but these days you’ll find me on air with Hit 92.9. I’ve spent the last 4 years with Will and Woody in the mornings but now I’m having fun and love working with my new co-hosts Xavier and Ryan! I’ve also done bits and pieces on TV including joining the Big Brother family in 2013 and more recently had my own segment on Channel 9’s Footy WA.

I write a column for Perth Now (don’t tell my editor that I failed English at school!) and I also contribute occasionally to the female online website Mamamia. I’ve worked with numerous charities and I’m a HUGE supporter of Melanoma WA & Lifeline WA ❤

In 2016 I started my own YouTube channel and this site, realheidi.com. I have been slack on YouTube lately though but promise to start making more content soon! Now in 2017 I’ve started running workshops about my ongoing battle with body image & anxiety and look forward to running more exciting and inspiring workshops into 2018.

I created this space just for you so I hope you enjoy it!
