Heidi is a Fellow with the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) and was on the board of The National Osteoporosis Foundation for ten years.

As a realist, Heidi believes M&M’s can fit into a healthy eating style along with red peppers, red meat, broccoli, and fresh fruit.
Sleep is the next wellness domain she will attempt to master (and has yet failed at).
