Heather Whitley, Dancer, Scientist

Heather Whitley, Waltz of the Flowers and Mouse King

Heather Whitley is a dancer and a dance coach at the Valley Dance Theatre. When she's not performing in the Nutcracker or teaching choreography to children, she works at the Lawrence Livermore Lab as a scientist. She's driven by her work as a scientist and researcher, and still has time to give to her students and supporters of dance in the Tri-Valley.
