my advocacy

I advocate for eating disorders awareness and education. After starting recovery from an eating disorder, I wanted to share my journey and bring light to these illnesses, so that less people would have the same isolating experience as I did. To promote this cause, I use my social media presence, write magazine articles, speak on local news outlets, and speak with groups. Most recently, I have been working with dance nutritionists to write a document on how to address disordered eating in dance education environments.
