Default Proper heel position

I trained my dog how to do the heel position using a box that her front feet were on. We practiced with me going around the box until she knew to move in to the correct position. Now without the box she knows the position to go in to. The problem is that when I turn to my right she wil take a step in front of me and then step back next to my left leg. This isn't a problem when I turn left because she just backs up. Is there something I can do to help with this? When she does line up she lines up pretty well but I don't think she should be stepping in front of me and then backing up to my leg.
