She joins us from the Chiropractic field where she has provided office support and insurance coordination services since 2005. In 2011, she earned her Associates Degree in Liberal Arts with a concentration in Behavioral Sciences and has found that degree immeasurably useful in her day-to-day patient interactions. Heather is also a certified Reiki practitioner, believes in a holistic approach to wellness, and LOVES to cook.

"I have definitely noticed a difference in my body with training and recovery and performance Before starting physical therapy with Colleen Russell I definitely had a lot of asymmetries in my body For example, my left quad was more than 5 cm smaller than my right side As of Feb 8, there is only a 1 cm difference That is one of the most obvious and visible physical changes, but I have also noticed positive things in training like the ability to maintain my hip position when sprinting and jumping My hips were really weak when I started PT with Colleen and that has been one area of focus in therapy sessions My hips feel a lot stronger and I am able to maintain stronger, more powerful positions during long and hard workouts Instead of fatiguing, I am able to complete the workouts maintaining good form Which is really important being a multievent athlete, because we spend long hours practicing and on competition days sometimes up to six hours, and the ability to maintain good physical form throughout a workout or competition is really important for seeing the best results possible I feel like I can last through an entire tough work out without certain muscle groups fatiguing, because we have been working to make sure everything is strong and stays strong"~ Sharon Day, Olympic Athlete
