My path to becoming a dietitian was influenced by a very different purpose than the one that guides me today. I struggled with an eating disorder in college so at the time I wanted to learn everything I could about nutrition to manage my own “health” (aka *how to shrink my body and maintain it*). This landed me in the unhealthiest place I had ever been, physically + mentally. Recovering with an intuitive eating, Health at Every Size® approach saved me from a life in which my number one priority was to be the smallest version of myself. So when I say that I understand what you are going through, I truly mean it.
Having had this experience allows us to connect on a deep and meaningful level. I see you, I hear you, and I feel you. And I will hold space for any life experiences that we don’t share. You deserve to nourish without guilt, feel at home in your body, and step into the fullest, happiest, healthiest version of YOU.
