My name is Heather Theiss. I am a 1st Degree Black Belt and an Assistant Instructor with ACTIVSTARS. I earned my Black Belt in 2016 through the ACTIVSTARS Program. I was a student at the UMKC School of Nursing and graduated in 2017 with my BSN and I currently work as a Registered Nurse at Research Medical Center. I am certified in Concussion Protocol and CPR Basic Life Support with AED training. I am proficient with Broadsword, Twin Broadsword, Broadsword and Shield, Bo Staff, Chinese Fan, Katana, Bokken, and Shuriken Throwing. I enjoy training and teaching with my husband, Jon Theiss, and his family. Working as a part of a family has been a very rewarding experience and I encourage others to try it as there are so many benefits to learning karate as a family.
My favorite quote"I am only one, but still I am one. I cannot do eveything, but still I can do something. And because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do the something that I can do." -Helen Keller
