My Story

Hi there, I'm Laura, and I'm so glad you found your way here. Let me share a bit about myself and why I'm passionate about what I do.

My journey into coaching others through eating disorder recovery didn't start in a boardroom or a classroom. It began in the trenches of my own battles with disordered eating and an eating disorder. Growing up as a twin sister, comparison was second nature. While there were certainly joys in having a built-in best friend, the constant comparisons often left me feeling inadequate and struggling with low self-esteem and poor body image.

In high school, I found my purpose in sports. I participated in cross-country running, cross-country skiing and track. These sports provided me with the outlet I needed to cope with the stresses of high school and helped me find an identity outside of being a twin. I fell in love with these sports and continued to excel in them. What started as a fun activity and something I loved quickly turned into a way for my disordered eating to control me. My relationship with movement became about needing to burn off what I was eating and control my size.  

It wasn't until I ventured off to university that the full weight of my struggles became apparent, leading to a diagnosis that changed everything. My own recovery journey was anything but linear. I stumbled, I fell, and I picked myself back up countless times. But through each setback, I found strength in knowing that there was more to life beyond my eating disorder. 

The turning point that threw me further into recovery came with a heartbreaking loss - the passing of my mother due to cancer. In the midst of grief, I found a renewed sense of purpose to delve even deeper into my recovery and to help others do the same. 

Recovery isn't a one-size-fits-all journey. It's messy, it's complex, and it's anything but easy. But I can tell you firsthand that it's worth it. Every stumble, every setback, every victory - they all contribute to the beautiful landscape of recovery. 

So whether you're just starting out on your recovery journey or navigating through the twists and turns, know that you're not alone. I'm here to walk alongside you, to offer support, guidance, and, most importantly, hope.

Together, we can rewrite the narrative and discover the freedom that comes with embracing our true selves.
