  Heather Hartman, born April 16, 1983, is an avid athlete including Soccer, Snowboarding, Running and now Boxing. With a 9-1 amateur record she eagerly awaits her next opponent.

Heather started competing in soccer when she was 10 years old as a goal keeper. She went on to compete and capture many awards. She competed in the WPSL or Women's Premier Soccer League for three years.

Heather played for the "Storm" a Sacramento soccer team who was ranked 7th in the world. Heather played side by side with other notable players such as, Lekeysha Beene (US National Team Goal Keeper), Brandi Chastain (Gold Medalist), Sissi (Sissi being the the #1 player from Brazil). The WPSL is the highest level of women soccer in the United States. Heather turned down many paid offers around the country and found a new love---boxing.

Heather's training regiment for soccer was five hours, two of which was in a high performance gym in Castro Valley. Andre Ward (from Oakland, California, Gold Medalist,Current WBC champion Pro boxer with a 20-0 record) was also training at the same high performance gym as well as Andre's trainer Virgil Hunter. In 2003, Virgil took quick notice of Heathers amazing work ethic and resembled that of Andre Ward and befriended her. From there, Heather and Virgil or "Virg" agreed to a trial period in which Heather would have to prove that the dedication and work ethic she had for soccer would be conveyed for boxing. Heather continued on to be the first woman Virgil has ever trained at a competitive level.

Sam Sheridan, a writher for Men's Journal and writing his own book, "A Fighters Heart" came to visit and Andre, Virgil. Heather takes up a few pages in Sam's book. The book itself is a must read for anyone interested in boxing and fighting in general.

In her first amateur bout, that took place on July 22, 2006, at the King's Gym in Oakland, California, after a year of intense training at a local gym and out of Virgil's garage, "the training house" her first fight was at King's Gym. She defeated the 2005 Women's Northern California Golden Gloves Champion Kara Potter at (145 lbs) by points.

In her second amateur bout, on September 30, 2006, at the Irish Cultural Center in San Francisco, California, she won by points in the 150lbs division.

On March 23, 2007, at the Kezar Pavillion, San Francisco, CA, Heather competed in the 2007 Northern California Golden Gloves tournament. Heather defeated her opponent at (152 lbs) and became the Northern Golden Gloves Champion.

On September 7, 2007 Heather won on points.

December 8, 2007 Heather stopped her opponent in the third round.

Febuary 2, of 2008 Heather won on points and would go on to be unopposed for the Central Pacific Region Champion at 154lbs

March 11, 2008 Heather's First national tournament she had a draw with Lisa Kuronya, two time National Champion 16-16. The judges then went on to award her opponent the tie break with the according to the new scoring system.

July 19, 2008 Heather defeated a local fighter in Fresno by points.

Her record now stands at 9-0-1

On July 14, 2009 Heather had her son Tyler Makaio Pratt. Throughout her pregnancy Heather continued to stay in the gym and keep her boxing training at a high level. After only weeks of having her son Heather returned to the gym and resumed training, and would encourage others athletic moms and all moms to stay fit during thier pregnancy if they want to resume their training afterward.

Heather was recently accepted into the Army's World Class Athlete Program through the California National Guard. In the next two years her aspirations are to make the first ever Womans Olympic Boxing Team and follow in the footsteps of teammate Andre Ward and win a gold medal. She will be in boot camp/training for about 4 months. She will then move to Colorado Springs with her husband and son and resume her training with former Olympic coach and the WCAP head coach, Basheer Abdullah.
