I can't keep track of my wallet to save my life but seem to have a knack for asking questions that get right down to the root of things.
ONCE UPON A TIME
When I was in high school I started to compare my body to the pictures in magazines and other girls in my dance classes. What started out as a pretty innocent wish to be a bit thinner spiralled into a total obsession with food, calories and obtaining the “perfect” body. It is a very slippery slope, the one between leading a “healthy” lifestyle and total obsession. Three months in an inpatient program helped get me back to a healthier weight & released me from the grip of the ED but I still struggled with how to love myself and found myself in a cycle of binging and restricting food.
I spent the next 10 years on a journey to find that deep, sense of wellbeing that doesn’t come from a big shopping spree or hitting your goal weight.
I launched Raw Beauty Co. in 2014 as an interview series featuring women without make-up, photo editing or filters. I created it for myself but was amazed by the reaction from people around the world.
In 2017, I completed my health & life coaching certification through the Health Coach Institute. As a coach I have had the honour of working with hundreds of women through my online programs and 1:1 coaching practice.
Most recently, I'm excited to bring Free to Be, a media literary and positive body image program to youth in grades 5-9.
Looking at my life I feel a deep sense of gratitude. My external world is beautiful (please note I didn't say perfect) but I truly believe it is simply a representation of how I feel on the inside.
I want you to help you find your own version of that feeling too.

NOW FOR THE IMPORTANT STUFF
I made a vision board 12 years ago & everything on it has happened. Still find that wild.
I've been trying to stop biting my nails for 35 years. Prob not going to happen. #Acceptance
I have two younger sisters & they inspire so much of the work I do.
I still wear skinny jeans, side part my hair and use the cry-laugh emoji. Sorry, not sorry Gen Z.
