OED Recovery Coaching Academy
Successfully create, build & launch your ED Coaching Business
If ANY of these are true, OED Academy is for YOU
You are working with your dream clients, having an impact in the recovery world, making great money and you have a rich LIFE outside of your work. You built a successful ED practice, achieved your financial goals and feel at peace with your work life balance. The program you've created is truly making a difference, helping those who are struggling with disordered eating & eating disorders
Why Eating Disorder Coaching?
OED's mission has always been to help as many people as possible suffering with eating disorders. The current approach to ED treatment falls short in helping people. On one end of treatment is inpatient or residential which is a highly controlled and unrealistic environment that makes the transition home increasingly difficult. On the other end of treatment, a client attends an appointment for one hour per week. This hardly helps move the needle for someone who is experiencing ED thoughts 15+ hours per day. Coaching bridges the gap between the two where we work alongside therapists and RDs offering 2/47 accountability and support in between sessions. Coaching also focuses on co-creating a recovery action plan to freedom - it is focused on the present and the future not looking back at WHY a client has the eating disorder.
At OED, we have been fortunate that our Food Peace program has helped hundreds recover but this hardly makes a dent in the tens of millions who are struggling. To fulfill OED's mission we need more ED coaches. ED Recovery Coaches satisfy a glaring gap in treatment. Coaches can create signature programs that offer their clients 24/7 accountability, meal support or other modalities such as meditation, yoga or NLP.

OED Academy Founder
For the past eight years, I’ve built OutshiningED. My mission is the same today as it was when I started – help as many people with eating disorders find freedom.
I have my MBA from Harvard Business School and was hired by Gary Vaynerchuk post-MBA to be CEO of one of his companies in NYC. Not only did I learn how to build and operate a business, but I also learned invaluable business mindset lessons from Gary himself.
Before I started OutshiningED, I doubted myself for a full year. I told myself:
- “a 9 to 5 job is way safer”
- “we can’t afford this”
- “what if I fail”
- “I’ll be embarrassed saying that I’m an eating disorder coach”
- “what if I’m not good at coaching and can’t really serve others”
I entertained those doubts for far too long until I realized I was having these thoughts because this was placed on my heart by something bigger than me. Yes, my MBA, my experience running other businesses and my coach were instrumental in me building and scaling OED. But I wouldn’t have taken the leap without consistent prayer, struggle and faith.
Now, I get to do what I love! OutshiningED has helped hundreds of women find freedom with our proven OED method and I’ve hired and trained eight coaches in administering the OED method. While my mission at OED is the same, I realized that me coaching clients 1:1 wasn’t scaling. I want to help millions of people struggling with EDs and I accomplish that when YOU successfully build your own ED practice.
If you’re wondering if you can make a living doing what you love, the answer is yes. I LOVE getting to choose when I work and who I work with. Time is precious to me and I reserve so much of it for my family – my three children, my husband and our sweet pup Coco. I’ve also managed to bring FUN and JOY into my life through time with friends, tennis, reading and coaching my kids’ sports teams.
