A Light In the Darkness

A Light In the Darkness Episode 9 - Heather Doney

August 12, 2020

Heather was raised in Riverton, Ut, and is the 4th of 8 kids. She graduated from high school and married her high school sweetheart, Dan Doney, in March 2000. They have 4 pretty cool kids ages 17, 15, 13, and 11. Heather loves to entertain, make new friends, and make people laugh. She's loved to dance since she was little and has learned to enjoy working out. She decided to combine the two things, and she became a certified Zumba instructor in 2011. She taught for almost 7 years when she had to quit because she was experiencing a lot of health challenges which led her in many different directions trying to figure out what was causing her health problems. Heather was diagnosed with Lyme Disease in January 2018 and it's been quite the journey for her - but she's since made social media accounts sharing the "happy habits" she's adopted into her life over the years. Since doing some treatments to combat the Lyme, Heather is doing well. She's continued to try and stay active and recently fulfilled a dream of having a viral video of her teaching Zumba in her backyard to all of her neighbors while they socially distanced during the quarantine. It's been viewed over 30 million times, featured on Good Morning America, PBS News Hours, local news stations, and even interviewed with Instagram guru Jay Shetty, and caught the attention of celebrities like Khloe Kardashian and Demi Lovato and The Kelly Clarkson Show. It's been a fun few months as she's learned the ins and outs of having a viral video. She hopes to inspire others to not give up when challenges seem unbearable, all while laughing along the way.
