Episode 67: How She Overcame Binge Eating and Rebuilt Her Body Image to Protect Her Kids with Kimberly Dempsey

Why We Love Kimberly:

As a wife and mother of three, a woman who has struggled with body image and binge and restricting behaviors, Kimberly knows what it’s like to feel stuck in a cycle that didn’t serve her.  Motivated by a desire to teach her children a different way, Kimberly enrolled in Wellness Lately’s Food Freedom Academy. 

Her experience in the program went above and beyond her expectations. Kimberly was able to heal her relationship with food and her body. So inspired by the work being done and excited by the gap in the market, Kimberly joined the Wellness Lately team as Director of Marketing. 

She brings over 15 years of successful experience in sales and marketing to the table and a true passion to help other women end their own struggles around food and body image.
