Heather joined Denver Spine Surgeons at the beginning of January, 2020. She assists Dr. Jatana in the operating room, as well as in the clinic setting.
Heather completed her education in the state of Nebraska, where she was also a member of the Division I Women’s Soccer Program. Prior to working at Denver Spine Surgeons, she practiced in orthopedic spine surgery in Omaha, NE, hand and upper extremity in Kearney, NE, as well as in dermatology in Grand Island, NE. In 2016, Heather moved to Denver, CO and returned to her roots in orthopedic spine surgery. Building positive relationships and developing a constant support system for patients and their families makes working as a healthcare provider wonderfully rewarding for Heather. She strives to always provide the best care possible, listen to her patients, advising and supporting them with any decision they choose, just as she would want for someone in her family.
Outside of work, Heather enjoys spending time with her friends and family, being in the outdoors: hiking, running, biking and skiing, as well as attending music festivals and traveling.
