Heather is currently a theatre arts teaching artist in the NYC area. A graduate of The American Musical and Dramatic Academy (AMDA) conservatory program for Musical Theater, she has performed professionally in national tours, local NY theater, film and television for over 13 years. She obtained her BS in Liberal Arts with a concentration in psychology where she gained an understanding of how the mind works, which is often closely tied to acting skills and how we conduct ourselves in everyday life. She also has studied Speech-Language Pathology to get a more in-depth education in speech, voice, and language.

Her well rounded education along with her professional experience gives her a unique perspective on using the voice and the body whether is it for an acting role on stage or simply interacting with others in a professional or social environment.
