Told in New Zealand that after 14 years of an eating disorder she was a chronic case and would never fully recover, Kristie decided to defy statistics and do the opposite. She searched online for international treatment options and flew to America, spending 7 months in treatment. She recovered. Deeply affected by the profound experience of recovery, Kristie has dedicated her life to ensuring treatment is available for everyone, no matter where they live. She is the founder and director of Recovered Living, an online and face-to-face treatment option that focuses on the practical side of recovery. Outspoken, down to earth and with a genuine warmth, Kristie role models the truth that full recovery really can be reality.
