After spending years battling a severe eating disorder as a result of a multitude of traumas and low self-worth, I found the strength to regain my health and reclaim my life. Before my recovery, I allowed the shame I carried from a difficult past keep me from living my life freely. I lived in fear of being judged and never felt that who I was could ever be enough. I was wrong. Once I made the decision to make the changes necessary to be happy, I was finally able to enjoy my life in ways I never could have imagined. In 2007, I founded the Fit vs Fiction Body Image workshops, an interactive workshop for parents, kids and teachers that empowers kids to live with healthy self-esteem in an image obsessed society. I have been named one of Canada’s Top 100 Health Leaders by Optimyz Fitness and wellness magazine for 2018, 2019, 2020 and 2021 and have published two books.
I share my story openly and honestly so that others can feel safe sharing their own struggles and concerns with me.
