Health at Every Size®-Aligned Consulting, Marketing & Content
For the HAES, Body Positive, Fat Acceptance, Plus-Size Fashion, Intuitive Eating & Eating Disorder Recovery Communities
In addition to my hats as a photographer and body liberation advocate, I’m a marketer, writer and editor.
My background is in corporate marketing, writing and technical editing in the government contracting and software fields, where my employers and clients ranged from L-3 Communications to small businesses to Disney.
In 2015, I turned my attention to body acceptance and liberation work and began offering client photography, stock photography and writing services.
My clients now include Health at Every Size® (HAES) and intuitive eating-aligned psychologists, psychiatrists, therapists, coaches, nutritionists, dietitians, fitness pros and trainers, and other healthcare pros.
I have a deep understanding of HAES, intuitive eating, weight bias and stigma, body image and liberation, body positivity and fat acceptance. My work is always created from a social-justice-aware lens, and I refer to my lived experience as a fat person when applicable.
Equity and Anti-Weight-Stigma Consulting
I’m also helping thin folks process, unpack and do better on an individual basis. Often, this looks like meeting (via Zoom) to untangle a web of beliefs, thoughts and assumptions around fat bodies that affect both your personal life and business.
It may also look like walking through your website, social media, handouts, course or other materials to ensure you’re not inadvertently harming fat folks.
My specialty is translating techspeak and jargon into 101-level language that anyone can understand. In other words, I’ll explain llamas to your mama. (Or drama. Or dioramas. Or commas.) I’m experienced in content creation and inbound marketing, from articles to guides to whitepapers to social media. I’m a detail-obsessed nitpick of an editor, a flexible writer and a quick study.

Marketing Coaching & Services
Many of my clients just aren’t sure what to start, or what they need. The solution is often a blend of all the services I offer: a bit of consulting, a hint of copy editing, a few content gaps filled, and dash of loving butt-kicking. During our consultation, we’ll talk about what that process might look like for you and your business/organization specifically.

Body Size Diversity & Equity Consulting
I spend a lot of time thinking about and discussing inclusive and accessible spaces, and how business owners can both grow their businesses and be welcoming, fantastic places for people who identify as large-bodied, plus-size, fat, superfat or infinifat. In fact, I’m even writing a book on it, from where to find high-weight-limit chairs to the nitty-gritty details like how to handle fatphobia when it comes from your customers or employees.
I’m happy to help you design or adapt your business to be fat-friendly and inclusive. Let’s talk about your specific situation and needs.
I’m also happy to do an equity/sensitivity reading on your book draft.
