Jeanette, Vic and Jeanette will share their own personal holiday coping skills, offering encouragement and insight into how to transform your experience of the holidays this year from one in which battling ED (eating disorder) takes center stage to one in which GRATITUDE and true breakthroughs in recovery become possible.

Presenter Bios:Jeanette Henriques

Jeanette Henriques is living life without an eating disorder after over 15 years of struggling. Throughout the course of her journey she struggled with anorexia, bulimia, depression and post traumatic stress disorder. However, today she travels around talking to children, adolescents and adults sharing her experience. Not only does she let people know that it is possible to move beyond disordered eating but that it is possible to move beyond your past. Jeanette counsels and mentors those with eating disorders as well as victims of abuse. Her message to all those that struggle is one of hope and acceptance and encourages people to work towards their dreams because anything is possible.

Jnette YatesJeanette Yates struggled with an eating disorder beginning when she was a young girl and continuing on through the birth of her second child. She credits her faith, a strong support team and most of all her love for her husband and children (and theirs for her) with giving her the strength to start fighting for and maintaining recovery. Today she is a leader in her own right in the eating disorder field. Jeanette is now a recovery mentor (and board member-elect) with MentorCONNECT and also mentors through her Jacksonville, FL-based COREministries. She is a speaker, an activist, a blog-writer and a soon-to-be author. Learn more at http://restoreyourcore.wordpress.com/
