Heather quite literally grew up in a gym.  Her daddy and granddaddy were basketball coaches, and she picked up a set of pompoms pretty much as soon as she could walk. Though her cheerleading days are far behind her, Heather obsessively loves college basketball and football (and horse racing, too!).  She sometimes writes about Kentucky sports for Lexington's Ace Weekly magazine, about Kentucky life for HerKentucky, and on her blog, Mint Juleps and Magnolias.
