Cindy began mentoring and coaching adults recovering from eating disorders in the early 1990's when coaching was not a known support service in the field of eating disorder treatment. [Read more here on Cindy's early start of eating disorder coaching...]  Cindy spent more then thirteen years developing, refining and providing coaching support to recovering adults in her community before delivering it globally to eating disorder healthcare professionals. 

In 2006, Cindy was the first person to introduce life coaching to an international audience of eating disorder treatment providers when she presented at The 2006 Renfrew Foundation Annual Eating Disorder Conference (Philadelphia PA). Over the years, she continued to present  at international eating disorder conferences,  treatment facilities, health programs, businesses and community events nationwide and in Canada. Since then, eating disorder treatment services have added coaching support through the use of peer coaches and recovery coaches.  

Today, Cindy continues to be a positive and empowering coaching support to her clients across the globe, as they go through and beyond recovery. She strives to provide value-driven life coaching guidance and Hope to her clients. She inspires them to be the author of your own life story. When they do this, they turn the Process of Recovery into a Journey of Discovery.
