Exercise has always been important in Heather’s life. In 2001 she was diagnosed with Leukemia. Complications led to her being given less than 2% chance of survival. Two relapses later she was given an experimental bone marrow transplant and have been cancer free since 2005. After moving to Wilmington, Heather continued running marathons and became a mentor/coach for Leukemia and Lymphoma Society Team in Training. Her singular motivation for conditioning was always displaced by her instinct to assist others in completing their goals. Over 15 marathons she never considered her finishing time as important as helping someone get to the finish line.
Heather discovered Pilates 12 years ago as a stretching and cross training benefit to her marathon training. The pains she was experiencing in my knees, hips and lower back faded quickly after a few sessions. Heather joined Club Pilates in 2018 and almost immediately signed up for the teacher training program.
When Heather isn’t studying and creating your Pilates classes, she enjoys taking a Pilates class “The reformer is my happy place”. Heather enjoys healthy cooking and spending time with her husband and Kona their labradoodle. “I look forward to helping others reach their personal finish lines!!”
