Alita:  She is Maria’s mother, and is passionate about helping others in their journeys toward healing from eating disorders.  In her words, “I want to improve the road for the next person who needs to walk it- especially in terms of finding treatment and decreasing feelings of isolation.”  Alita serves as the Family Liaison Committee Head.

Shauna: She was a friend of Maria’s, and is one of the co-founders of the organization.  Her passion rests in helping local people learn about eating disorders, size discrimination, and media influences.  Shauna serves as the Governance Committee Head.

Tori: She is the yoga instructor who leads our monthly yoga group and the leader of the ANAD support group. (Tori is a certified yoga instructor, Certified Peer Specialist, EDIT coach, and is in the process of becoming a registered dietician.) Tori identifies as an individual living in recovery from her eating disorder, and also serves as the Event Planning Committee Head.
