Heather Christensen (born October 1 1979) is an American glamor model, noted for her work in various "Playboy" publications.

She was "Playboy Special Editions" Model of the Year for 2001. [http://www.playboy.com/specialeditions/directory/models/christensen-heather.html "Heather Christensen"] , "Playboy Special Editions". Retrieved 2008-01-14.] In 2002, she posed as a mermaid in the "Wet and Wild" 2002 edition.

Christensen was born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio, and moved to Tampa, Florida when she was 20. When she turned eighteen, she was determined to go to college, but, her family didn't have money for the tuition, so Christensen began dancing in a topless strip club for $500 per night. She was seen there by a scout from "Playboy", and began to model, which "sort of interrupted" her longer term plans.

Christensen has a wide range of hobbies, including rock climbing, diving, snowboarding, hiking, and singing. She is an especially noted skateboarder, who has been skating since 1998, first with a boyfriend, then by herself. The hobby cost her a broken arm, at Skatopia in Ohio, when she fell on a metal ramp; the fracture forced her to quit her job (and her boyfriend left her). She stayed with the hobby, however, and later lived with professional skateboarder Anthony Furlong. "Playboy" airbrushed out the scars on her arm in her pictures, and asked her to skate topless for a pictorial (which she says was "... embarrassing. I was like 'this hurts really bad!'"). The hobby has been a conflict for her modeling, as she can't skate for a week before a pictorial, to avoid bruises.

Christensen continued to study while working as a model. She earned a bachelor's degree in biology, [http://web.archive.org/web/20020702180511/www.heatherchristensen.com/hc/bio.aspx "My Biography"] , HeatherChristensen.com, archived at 2002-07-21, by the Internet Archive.
