Episode 75: Dianna Goodman (she/hers) — mother of Vance Goodman (Ep. 63) — shares a parent's perspective on eating disorders and recovery

In this emotional and inspiring episode, Dianna Goodman — mother of Vance Goodman who joined EDNR in episode 63 — shares her experience as a mother, caretaker, and human watching a loved one struggle with an eating disorder for years. Dianna shares her pain, frustration, and joy as she recalls navigating her daughter’s physical and emotional symptoms, accessing treatment (an even more daunting task 20 years ago), being told her daughter would not recover by medical professionals, her own sense of loneliness, and Vance’s full recovery. This journey eventually led to Dianna opening the Carolina Resource Center for Eating Disorders, a non-profit dedicated to supporting and helping those impacted by eating disorders — individuals and support systems alike. Her message of hope is powerful, and we were so grateful for Dianna’s time, energy, emotion, and grace. We hope you enjoy!

Episode 74: Amy Minh Hanh Corey (she/hers) — public speaker, ambassador, advocate — shares her recovery story

On this episode, Catherine and Francis interview Amy Minh Hanh Corey, public speaker, writer, ambassador, entrepreneur, and advocate for individuals experiencing mental health problems who feel misunderstood. Amy demonstrates such strength and passion in her story, sharing with the co-hosts what it was like being someone experiencing mental health problems and an eating disorder in the entertainment industry and how she was able to find recovery in a world that didn’t want her to recover. Through her recovery journey, Amy has connected with her culture, practicing Buddhism to remain grounded, and helping to educate individuals across the globe – including Vietnam through her Goodwill Ambassadorship – about the impacts of mental health experiences and how to seek and access treatment. We feel so grateful for Amy’s time, energy, and vulnerability, and hope you can find your own connection in the words she shares.

In this episode, Francis and Catherine talk to Jasmyn Cornelle, Miss Fayette County, Georgia, 2020-21. Jasmyn talks about her experience with body dissatisfaction and her motivation for creating “I am S.P.A.R.K.L.E,” an initiative focused on promoting body positivity, challenging beauty standards, and spreading awareness of eating disorders and body dysmorphic disorder.

Jasmyn also shares her experience of participating in the Miss America organization and working as a journalist, and she explores ways in which people can become intelligent media consumers. She also shares her experiences volunteering for several different eating disorder organizations.

Episode 72: Carrie Rossiter (she/hers), eating disorder recovery and LGBTQ+ advocate, vulnerably shares her story of recovery

In this episode of the Navigating Recovery Podcast, Catherine and Francis speak with Carrie Rossiter, an eating disorder recovery and LGBTQ+ advocate. Carrie vulnerably recalls the beginnings of her eating disorder, and how a trip to Italy and previous trauma and family dynamics contributed. She works through the painful parts of her story, continually reminding us that recovery is neither linear nor perfect, and that there is always hope for recovery. She talks about her book, Diet Pills and Broke Dream – Stories I Could Not Tell, a brutally honest memoir which is comprised of pieces of her journals. Carrie’s contribution to the podcast is an important one, and we were so appreciated of her time and energy.

Episode 71: Natalie Fisher (she/hers) shares her story of recovery and how she was able to create space for fun in a challenging experience

In this episode, Catherine and Francis are joined by Natalie Fisher, a junior at Grand Valley State University’s Kirkhof College of Nursing. She shares her story of recovery – which began in April of 2020 — and how social media became an outlet to speak out about her experience and connect with others in recovery or in search of recovery. In this interview, Natalie discusses what keeps her grounded and how she was able to create space for fun in her recovery, especially through her “Smash List”. Natalie wants to use her voice about eating disorder recovery and mental health to reach out and help those who may be struggling. Given her incredible passion about this subject and eating disorder recovery, she would love to work in the mental health field as a nurse one day. It was a pleasure having her on the program!

Catherine and Francis Participate in the Science Museum of Virginia's Lunch Break Science to talk Eating Disorder Recovery

This episode of the Navigating Recovery Podcast is a little different as co-hosts Catherine and Francis participated in the Science Museum of Virginia’s Lunch Break Science, a series of talks and lectures on varying topics for people to listen, learn, and connect. This is the recording of Catherine and Francis’s presentation. In this talk, Francis and Catherine debunked common myths about eating disorders; interviewed each other about their own eating disorders and how they found recovery in an effort to provide insight into that experience; revealed what they’ve learned about eating disorder recovery from a year of conversations on their podcast with clinicians and recovery/life coaches as well as individuals in recovery; shared insights into how to help a loved one who is struggling; and answered questions from the audience.

The museum is featuring the Mental Health: Mind Matter touring exhibition that uses immersive experiences and multimedia activities to raise awareness about mental illness. Catherine and Francis were so grateful for the opportunity to participate and share their stories.
