Keirsten Shaffer is HFA’s Digital Communications Manager, but she is also a nationally certified Pilates instructor, yoga teacher, and New York State Licensed Massage Therapist (LMT). She has been teaching Pilates and yoga for over 10 years.
When Keirsten was 29 and a single mother, she was diagnosed with Acute Promyelocytic Leukemia. Her life and career were put on hold for a few years. Regaining her strength and health was the biggest challenge she had ever faced, especially after years of chemotherapy and countless other medications. Pilates, yoga, and massage all played a role in her recovery, so she began studying all three until she was able to open her own studio in New York.
In addition to her work as an instructor and therapist, Keirsten has 20 years of experience in writing, marketing, public relations, business & community development, and entrepreneurship, especially in healthcare.
