PhD candidate in the Department of Family Relations and Applied Nutrition, University of Guelph

I am a PhD candidate in the Department of Family Relations and Applied Nutrition at the University of Guelph in Ontario, Canada. I have a passion for improving access to quality, accessible, and appropriate care for people with eating disorders. To me, the best way to do this is by working systemically and structurally to change healthcare policy to be more supportive of diverse experiences. I research, write, and speak about eating disorders, embodiment, and social justice in academic and community settings.
