About the organizer: Mindy Hoffman, MA, LPCC, NCC is an eating disorder therapist, eating disorder recovery advocate, blogger, and guest speaker. Mindy is in recovery from anorexia and bulimia. She shares her journey through her blog and speaking engagements. In her recovery, Mindy realized how detrimental black and white thinking can be and challenged herself to live in the gray, or rather, the "hot pink", and tries to live a more balanced life with less extremes. Over the past few years, she has been challenged in her own life through recovering into a larger body and living in our culture. She is passionate about educating others on diet culture, fatphobia, body acceptance or neutrality. She tries to normalize larger bodies through her own life experiences. She heard in her recovery that body image is "the last thing to go" but disagrees as your body is always with you. She wants to help others accept their bodies and maybe even do things they never thought they would do because of their body size. Mindy holds a Bachelor of Science in Biology from Southeast Missouri State University and Master of Clinical Mental Health and Counseling from Denver Seminary.
