I have been privileged to help with the development and implementation of nutrition programming at a number of well-respected eating disorder treatment centers around the country. I have had the honor of speaking locally, regionally, & nationally at professional conferences on topics related to nutrition and eating disorder recovery. I also contribute to the field through professional writing.
