Heidi completed her Pilates certiﬁcation through the Pilates Sports Center (PSC), which included Mat, Reformer, Cadillac, Chair, and Barrel. She has been a group ﬁtness instructor and personal trainer since 2003. Just as she enjoys helping others reach their ﬁtness goals, in 2006 she decided to reach a personal goal, making it to the stage of Ms. Fitness USA.

Through the years she has earned various certiﬁcations, including TRX, Burn at the Barre, and her 500-hour yoga certiﬁcation. Along with her high energy, her creativity deﬁnitely shows up in the classes and private clients she instructs. Heidi is a creative thinker with a journalism degree from Arizona State University. She still uses her journalism skills as a contributing writer for the online publication, FITT.
