She began her athletic career as a gymnast at 5yrs old and eventually gravitated toward the basketball court, volleyball court, and track, as a teenager. She went on to play NCAA Division I Basketball at Columbia University in New York and Professionally in Brazil. Heather entered her first NPC show 2006 and earned her IFBB Pro Card in Figure in 2011. She transitioned to the Women’s Physique Division in 2014 and went on to take a 3rd, two 2nds, and win two Pro Shows (while also qualifying for the 2014 and 2015 Olympia). She was also one of eleven women in the world selected to compete in the Inaugural Ms. Women’s Physique International Show at the 2015 Arnold Classic Sports Festival. As a trainer, Heather prides herself on tailoring specific programs to meet the needs of her clients. Her clientele ranges from young aspiring athletes, to “soccer-Moms” and executives, to collegiate and professional athletes. She is constantly searching for better and more efficient methods to achieve the client’s desired result. As a contest preparation consultant, she is meticulous with consistent adjustments and encourages constant progression (on and off season). The beauty of contest preparation lies in the transformation which can be extreme, but should also be safe. Heather believes the process is a lifestyle and encourages her clients to adopt a balanced, long-term approach in reaching their goals toward the stage. Heather holds a degree in Political-Economy from Columbia University; Personal Training Certifications with ACE and NASM; and a Precision Nutrition Level 1 Certification.
