Jenni Schaefer's breakthrough bestseller, "Life Without Ed: How One Woman Declared Independence from Her Eating Disorder and How You Can Too," established her as one of the leading lights in the recovery movement. With her second book, "Goodbye Ed, Hello Me: Recover from Your Eating Disorder and Fall in Love with Life," she earned her place as one of the country's foremost motivational writers and speakers. In her latest, she teams with Harvard Medical School to address the millions of people who struggle with disordered eating while not meeting the diagnostic criteria for a full-blown eating disorder. "Almost Anorexic: Is My (or My Loved One's) Relationship with Food a Problem?" (Harvard Health Publications/Hazelden, July 2013) bridges the gaps between cutting-edge research, clinical knowledge and personal experience to provide both insight and hope.
Jenni's straightforward, realistic style has made her a role model, source of inspiration, and confidant to people worldwide looking to overcome adversity and live more fully. She speaks at conferences, at major universities, and in corporate settings; has appeared on many syndicated TV and radio shows; and has been quoted in publications including "The New York Times." She is also Chair of the Ambassadors Council of the National Eating Disorders Association. An accomplished singer/songwriter, she lives in Austin, Texas.
