Pt 4: Stories of Hope, Education and Inspiration: A four-part series from Eating Disorder Therapist

Meet Jane Wynne, Registered Dietician (RD)

The outgoing, fun and loving Jane Wynne is a registered dietitian that I have met along my journey at Monte Nido & Affiliates. Jane, like me, is someone who did not struggle with an eating disorder but found passion in her work with clients struggling from an eating disorder. Jane is sharing her story.

Why did you decide to work with clients struggling with eating disorders?

When I was younger, my childhood best friend struggled with an eating disorder. As a teenager, I remember feeling frustrated and powerless watching her wither away both physically and mentally. In her recovery journey, a dietitian was her primary source of support to help her weight restore and return to being the best friend who I know, love, and is still a huge part of my life today.

While studying nutrition, eating disorders were simply one page in a textbook or a couple of slides in a lecture during my entire two years of graduate school. Because I was determined to learn more about eating disorders and become comfortable with this population, I became a recovery coach at a nearby residential eating disorder facility.
