After raising a family and retiring from higher education, I’ve turned my attention to countering one of the most pervasive and destructive messages within western culture. This narrative, while simultaneously peddling diets that fail us, foods that fatten us, and unattainable standards of health and beauty, has led generations of women to loathe and reject their own bodies.

I am committed to presenting a fresh, affirming narrative to women. This new narrative, centered upon self-acceptance and love, sheds light on negative cultural messages that accuse and blame women for failing to live up to false standards of success. My goal is to help women in all stages of life recognize and realize their own natural, healthy, and sustainable weights and body sizes- by discovering the true problems that underlie unhealthy eating habits and patterns, along with truly workable solutions.
