Meet Heather! We scouted her (or she scouted us?) and she became a devoted FPC client during her 2nd pregnancy. We’re excited to bring her onto the team with her fun vibe and extensive pre/postnatal expertise.

Hometown? Queens, NY

Current location? Brooklyn

What is your background? 
I started dancing as a toddler and by my senior year of high school had began teaching dance classes. While pursuing a degree in elementary ed, I danced professionally and taught enrichment dance programs in public elementary schools - grades pre-k through 5th. After many years of Pilates being my go to workout I decided to become comprehensively certified. From there I went from instructor to teacher trainer, and found my passion for training the pre/postnatal population.

What do you do when you don't teach at FPC?
I chase my two sons around, ages 3.5 and 8 months, try to keep a neat home, and watch the current season of RuPaul’s Drag Race

What inspires you?
Other women who are powerful in what they do

Describe the energy of your FPC class.
Funky, fresh, dressed to impress, ready to party 

What do you want to be when you grow up?
A homeowner in my hometown. And to be cool enough to be featured in Advanced Style (my favorite blog) one day.

Current favorite song?
Come Sail Away by Styx, my big boy is VERY into singing this at the top of his lungs and it is the cutest. Default answer is anything by Biggie.

If you could be any animal in the world, what would you be and why?
In order: a manatee, an elephant, or a giraffe. They’re vegetarian, gentle, and huge, so no one messes with them

Tell us something that not a lot of people know about you.
I’ll have to get back to you, I’m kind of an open book...
