We met Jenna at the 2014 NEDA conference in San Antonio, TX. Jenna has been in recovery for seven years and shared her incredible story with us. “The trauma, combined with my perfectionism and anxiety, created a perfect recipe for anorexia. Over the next six years I bounced from anorexia to bulimia and back again”. While Jenna was in treatment she created an inseparable bond with a fellow patient, Kristina, who tragically lost her battle with ED the summer of 2013. In Kristina’s memory, Jenna has devoted her time to spreading awareness and education about Eating Disorders.
Jenna is not only and ED advocate and elementary teacher, but an entrepreneur. She recently became associated with Rodan + Fields, a skincare company dedicated to the creation of products that fight the signs of aging, sun damage, and acne scars. To Jenna, “One of the things that has given me confidence is fixing my poor skin. Having an eating disorder was hard on my body, and my skin. Eating regularly helped my skin, but there are two people who deserve credit for my soft, dewy skin, Dr. Katie Rodan and Dr. Kathy Fields.” Jenna has generously chosen to dedicate 15% of all proceeds from Rodan + Fields, to KMB for Answers.
