Heather Downen Bio – Heather Downen Wiki
Heather Downen born Heather Anna Christine Downen is the wife of Ryan Zimmerman, the first baseman for the Washington Nationals. She went to college for journalism and “worked as an Associate Producer at a news show through 2011.”
She quit her job and dedicated her life to traveling and raising their family, noting that “When I stopped working full-time last year, I did start traveling on most of the road trips.” She also characterized other Nationals wives and girlfriends as “great,” saying they tend to schedule flights together when they go on road trips.
She has spent a lot of her time helping run ziMS Foundation, the charity foundation Ryan started. She frequently tweets about the good they do, as well as their many events. Her husband Ryan Zimmerman founded ziMS Foundation in honor of his mother who in 1995 was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. He hopes to, as he says on their website, “find a cure for their unpredictable disease.” Most of what they do is volunteer-based, but Zimmerman, in 2009 and 2010, donated $200,000 to the foundation to help out as well.
She holds a Bachelor of Arts from Radford University from where she graduated in 2006. She was working as a tech-firm sales representative when she got engaged to Ryan in April 2012.
