Donna Short


Donna Short moved to Charlotte, NC when she was 12 but moved to Winston-Salem to attend North Carolina School of the Arts for her last two years of high school to focus on her ballet training. She then went to receive her BFA in Ballet Performance from the University of Oklahoma. Although she did not dance professionally, she taught ballet while living in Austin, Texas and continues to take class when she has time. She received her Doctorate in Physical Therapy from UNC – Chapel Hill and is currently practicing at Carolina Neurosurgery and Spine Associates. She has been deemed a “workout snob” by her husband after constantly complaining of not finding a workout challenging enough, that is until she found HSM! She believes there is nothing like this workout, it hits every muscle in a safe but challenging way that changes the whole body – particularly the core which is so important. Fitness has always been a huge part of her life, she loves her current profession of helping patients achieve their goals and looks forward to helping Hilliard clients achieve their fitness goals as well!
