Heather started CrossFit after the birth of her second child, daughter Jillian. The desire to shed the last lingering pounds of pregnancy led Heather to walk through the door of Rogue Gahanna and into classes led by Graham Holberg. Heather, a former Ohio State volleyball player, quickly re-emerged as a competitive athlete and was part of the Rogue Gahanna team for the 2010 and 2011 CrossFit Games seasons. In 2012 Heather successfully transitioned to individual competitor, qualifying for the CrossFit Games out of the Central East Region and finishing 22nd in Carson. Since the 2012 Games Heather has consistently finished top 10 in the Central East Region and has explored other competitive opportunities outside the Games season. Heather also maintains a full-time career as a 2nd grade teacher, but her proudest accomplishment in life is being mom to her two children, Sam and Jillian.
