I am a spunky, humor-loving, body-love preaching, literary nerd who wants to spread the message of hope in the eating disorder community. I speak out against the dangers of diet-culture and gender expectations in my personal blog. I received my Master’s Degree in English at DePaul University in August 2016. I enjoy poetry, 20th Century Modern fiction, writing, improv, music, concerts, cats, and documentaries of all sorts. On any given day, you may find me researching and writing about eating disorder recovery, diet culture, and female empowerment.
