More About Coach Heather

- As injured athlete, helped coach teammates in long jump, high jump, javelin, shot put, sprints, and middle-distance events
- Shadowed expert coaches during college (former LSU coach, 2019 Northeast regional coach of the year)
- Although I was injured, 3 of my training partners whom I helped coach made it to nationals for high jump and multi-events. Two of them became All-Americans
- Six years experience running local youth track and field camp, ages 7-15
- Former hurdles, jumps, javelin, and multis coach at Lexington High School in MA
- Current resident physician at LAC+USC. Available will be variable, but coaching is my passion and I’d love to coach you on my off days!
- Knowledgeable about injury management and prevention

- Former Division 1 Ivy League Heptathlete
- All-American in high school heptathlon, all-NY-state in pentathlon and long jump
- Experience in long jump, high jump, javelin, shot put, 100 and 400m hurdles, 200, 400, 800
- Injury in college led to more time coaching than competing. Learned from expert coaches, especially in jumps and multi events
- I have a passion for track & field and coaching. Since I can no longer compete, helping lead others toward their own success in track & field has become my way of continuing the sport and honoring all that it's done for me.

*Sessions will practice appropriate physical distancing and mask-wearing if in closer proximity*

Can coach any ages. Especially interested in coaching athletes looking to be competitive in high school and aspire to collegiate track & field.
Sessions will be tailored to where you'd like to improve and which event(s) you're focusing on.
Will begin with assessing your current ability, technique, strengths, etc. and work with you to devise a plan

Sessions can include
- warm-up drills, which are essential for proper running/jumping form
- technical sessions for field events to master technique
- running workouts if applicable
- speed/strength training
- injury prevention exercises

Equipment:
- I have 2 women’s javelins, one 8lb shot put (girls/women), a plyo box for jumping, miniature hurdles for sprint development drills, and a tape measure. All other equipment must be provided by the athlete or the facility.

Client Reviews

We were very happy with the session Heather ran for our 10 year old. We didn’t have a very clear vision for what we were looking for but Heather took that In stride. Our daughter had a lot of fun.

Heather works great with my teenage daughter! Very organized, brings necessary equipment, and utilized the time efficiently. My daughter is looking forward to more sessions with Heather!

I'm a track coach working with Heather to improve my approach to coaching the throwing and jumping events. She is fantastic--incredibly knowledgeable and professional. I would recommend Heather to any high school track athlete.
