Heather grew up in the northwest suburbs, and graduated from Indiana University. After pursuing a Masters in Education, she taught fifth grade in Chicago Public Schools. While she loved teaching, she wanted to have more time with her children, so in 2013 she left the classroom. This decision was one of the best decisions she has made, but she found herself missing teaching and the community that her school provided. She found this sense of community again when she attended her first Stroller Strides class, so when the opportunity to become an instructor presented itself she was thrilled! Working with Fit4Mom allows her to teach and inspire moms while showing children how important and exciting staying fit can be!
