I am a Clinical Psychologist and Credentialed Eating Disorder Clinician and have been working in private practice for over a decade now, treating children, adolescents and adults living with an eating disorder. Prior to this, I worked in inpatient and day patient eating disorder treatment programs. I am also a Guest Lecturer in Child/Adolescent and Adult Eating Disorders for Clinical Psychology postgraduate university students. I strongly value collaboration and disseminating knowledge, and I have been fortunate to present clinical workshops for clinicians at the annual Australia & New Zealand Academy for Eating Disorders (ANZAED) conference. In my other role as Co-Chair of the ANZAED Social Media Committee, I am involved in promoting ANZAED activities regarding research, prevention, treatment, and advocacy in the field of eating disorders. I also tend to be easily distracted by bookstores or animals (and especially by bookstores WITH animals)!
