Born in Roelofarendsveen, she started playing when she was six years old at the boys youth team of SV Alkmania in Oude Wetering. After being scouted by the Royal Dutch Football Association she moved to Racing Club in Leiderdorp (RCL) and played in the Eerste Klasse, the second division at that time. She was the top scorer of the 2003–04 Eerste Klasse. She then moved to Hoofdklasse (first division) club Ter Leede and won the Dutch League (Hoofdklasse), Dutch Cup and the Dutch Super Cup in 2006–07.
When the Dutch women's professional league (Eredivisie Vrouwen) was established in 2007, she moved to AZ, winning the Dutch League (Eredivisie) in three consecutive seasons (2007–08, 2008–09 and 2009–10) and the Dutch Cup in 2010–11. During her time at the club, she also played seven matches in the UEFA Women's Champions League scoring twice. The club folded at the end of the 2010–11 season and like most of its players, she moved to the newly formed SC Telstar. She played two seasons at Telstar, the first in the Eredivisie and the second in the newly created BeNe League (a merge between the professional Dutch and Belgian women's football leagues).
As a RCL (Racing Club Leiderdorp) player, aged 19 she became part of the Dutch national team set up. She made her debut under coach Vera Pauw on 7 September 2005 in a home friendly 0–2 defeat against Italy in Zwolle.
Selected by coach Vera Pauw to be in the national squad for the UEFA Women's Euro 2009, she played in two of the five Dutch matches in the tournament helping the team reach the semifinals.
In December 2009, then national coach Vera Pauw dropped Van den Heiligenberg and Dyanne Bito from the squad ahead of a match against Belarus. The decision proved controversial and it was reported that the duo were kicked out because they were in a relationship. Pauw angrily dismissed the claims, saying it was an insult to suggest they were excluded because of their relationship.
Van den Heiligenberg and Bito remained together and both were restored to the national team by incoming national coach Roger Reijners in 2010. A 2–0 win over Ireland in August 2010 was Van den Heiligenberg's 50th international cap. She was selected in the Netherlands squad for UEFA Women's Euro 2013 in Sweden.
A knee injury ruled out her chances of selection for the 2015 FIFA Women's World Cup. During the following seasons other injuries kept her out of contention for national team selections, she played one match, on 25 January 2016 against Denmark, her 97th cap and eventually her last, as on 6 July 2017 her international retirement was announced. She scored eight goals for the national team.
