FROM FOOD FIGHTER

to food freedom!

Growing up, emotional overeating was a coping method handed down to me. By high school- the weight started stacking on, and so did the depression. By the time I went to college I had a severe lack of esteem and decided to make a change.  This “change” marked the beginning of a trecherous journey into dieting, restrictive eating, and an addiction to a prescription weight loss drug. Although the weight came off, I was terrified to gain it back and only associated this new lean body with restrictive eating. So I continued to starve myself, over-exercise, binge, purge and repeat. 

It’s taken me 10 years for me to fully find peace and escape this cycle: to learn intuitive eating, moderation, and how to trust my body. Aside from food I've had many other difficulties in my life that make me relatable- grief, anxiety, depression, stagnancy, and so much more. I'm proud to have overcame so many challenges in my life and am happy that I now have a way to turn those pains into purpose. I am so thankful to have joy and peace in my life today and passionately hope to help you do the same!

ABOUT ME

MY BACKSTORY

I was born in Cairo, Egypt at exactly midnight. We stayed in Cairo until I was 5 and then moved to Austin, Texas. I loved growing up in Austin! Life was full of camping trips, taking the boat out, or hot summer days spent out by the pool. After I graduated high school I moved to Lubbock, Texas to attend Texas Tech University. These were some of my most challenging days as a young woman- trying to learn who I was outside of my family while navigating new relationships and friendships.

 

When it was time to graduate, I had a free-spirited itch that I needed to scratch. I wanted to do something big and bold and different. So I packed up and moved to the big, daunting city of LA to pursue work in the entertainment industry (hence the exasperated eating problems!).

 

For 6 years I lived and breathed the “hustle and grind” mentality. I worked on red carpets, did music videos, got some modeling jobs, and went to acting school. I learned so much about mindset and spirituality during this time. I always felt the need to share my story and help others-  so I eventually put more of my efforts into a blog and then a YouTube channel.

It wasn’t until 2019 that my entire life as I knew it would completely fall apart. Life was already messy and chaotic, but then I received a call that my former boyfriend had died in a car accident- and at that moment life as I knew it shattered into pieces. That was the most challenging season of my life and it constantly felt like the world was against me. But in the darkness, I promised myself that I would become a better person: I would build a relationship with God, learn gratitude, and focus on healing (food and eating were a priority). Of course, my disastrous 2019 season was compounded by the pandemic in 2020, which ultimately gave me more solitude to heal, grow and evolve.

I don’t have it all figured out but I’ve sat in the darkness, looked deeply into my afflictions, and learned to make peace with my shadows. It’s in those dark, challenging seasons that cocoon us... eventually releasing us into a new world with power and strength we didn’t know existed.

HOW I STARTED TEACHING THE
MIND BODY RESET METHOD

At the peak of my disordered eating crisis in 2016- I did a quick google search and shortly after landed in Dr. Mary Wansley's office.  I was desperate for help and felt like nobody on the planet would understand how psychotic I felt about something so basic as... food. 

Mary walked me through her 8-step "Mind Body Reset" program and helped me feel heard and understood. It was during this time that I first started to unravel the deep-seated beliefs I had around food. She taught me the program and gave me the tools I needed to eventually find food freedom. The Mind Body Reset program is what I credit so much of my recovery to and is a program that I stand by. 

Fast forward to 2021- I came to Mary and told her I wanted to start working in the realm of mental health. She offered to certify me to teach her program... to ultimately help others find the same freedom from food and disordered eating.

Quite the full-circle moment, huh?
