Although a member of the MAC since 2009, Heather's first experience with SHiNE Dance Fitness began in 2019, and she was immediately hooked. During her experiences, she realized SHiNE was a great workout for everyone, regardless of age and fitness level; therefore, she became a certified instructor in February of 2022. Heather believes that fitness is about YOU, and all her students should follow the SHiNE mantra - You Do You and Dance Like No One is Watching. SHiNE not only makes YOU feel good physically, but also the camaraderie and results make you feel good mentally. When Heather is not teaching at the MAC, she uses her MBA as a licensed private investigator in the field of risk management. She and her husband Marc have two active boys, one in junior high and one in high school, who both attend Milford Schools and play lacrosse.
