After spending years battling a severe eating disorder as a result of a multitude of traumas and low self-worth, Marci found the strength to regain her health and reclaim her life. Before her recovery, she allowed the shame Marci carried from a difficult past keeping her from living life freely. She lived in fear of being judged and never felt that who she was could ever be enough. She was wrong. Once she made the decision to make the changes necessary to be happy, she was finally able to enjoy her life in ways Marci never could have imagined. In 2007, she founded the Fit vs Fiction Body Image workshops, an interactive workshop for parents, kids and teachers that empowers kids to live with healthy self-esteem in an image obsessed society. She has been named one of Canada’s Top 100 Health Leaders by Optimyz Fitness and wellness magazine for 2018, 2019, 2020 and 2021 and have published two books.
Marci shares her story openly and honestly so that others can feel safe sharing their own struggles and concerns with her.
