I AM VIRAGO : HEATHER JONES-ZAPKOWSKI

Full Name: Heather M Jones-Zapkowski

Occupation or dream job: One in the same...I sell fun (bicycles)

Home-town: San Jose Ca

Fitness Secret: Keep moving or you rust! I love to dance. My soul and my body require it to function and I do so every day...in the kitchen, down the dairy aisle, at the bank and when I can...in the arms of my love.

Causes or organizations close to the heart: Special Olympics and Autism Speaks...both keep my heart healthy.

How have you turned your struggles into strength?
Grieving the loss of a loved one, I dove into learning the entire Nutcracker Suite as a means to release. Now, almost 20 years later I still play the entire ballet every holiday season and once again find myself getting lost in the movements with beautiful memories of my grandfather.
