Heather O’Donnell talks about her career as a pianist and health psychologist. After experiencing years of chronic pain and weakness in her fingers, hands and arms, she had to find a way of navigating these issues, and this in turn changed her views on her professional life as a pianist. She stepped away from her performance career and began studying psychology. Now she works with musicians on issues of health maintenance, recovery and development. She gives individual lessons and workshops at conservatories and universities on the complexities associated with these topics. She is in the process of founding a center for performing artists' health in Cologne, "The Green Room", scheduled to open in Fall of 2020.
