Francesca strongly believes in wellness for all, believing health to be a place to positively work toward rather than illness as something to run away from. She sees recovery from an eating disorder as a developmental process of discovering one’s self, values, and place in the world. She herself is passionate about creativity, loves yoga, enjoys dancing, feels alive when walking in the countryside, and loves to smile. She writes for numerous blogs, organizes arts and music events, and facilitates creative writing workshops. Having worked in advertising and marketing and with a degree in combined arts from Durham University, she is using her communication skills to help raise awareness about issues surrounding mental health, body image, and self-empowerment. She currently has a couple of projects on the go, including developing a recipe book to support eating disorder recovery. Read her blog.
