Meet Carolyn Hodges Chaffee, one of our speakers at the Circles of Change Conference on March 17th-18th in Phoenix, AZ.
The Circles of Change Conference is about celebrating and inspiring Warriors. So we feature the voices and stories of many, including one brave 8 year old girl who are transforming the culture and conversation in their own lives, their schools, their workplaces, and throughout the world. We are honored to share their wisdom, their art, and their stories with you.

Upstate New York Eating Disorder Service
What are you most inspired by at the moment?
There is so much exciting research in the field of eating disorder the treatment. The ability to change brain chemistry by what we eat, how we move, and how we react is promising.
When did you first know you wanted to do this work?
When I was working with weight management patients and know there were underlying problems that weren't being addressed.
How have you been able to move beyond it?
I've always believed it is so important to speak the truth. Deciding how to say things can be challenging at times, but always going by what is your truth helps you move beyond the fear.
What do you embrace about yourself?
The ability to connect with individuals struggling and not have them feel shamed.
To be able to provide the self care that each individual needs in all aspects of life.
Having everyone be able to see and embrace the beauty they hold within themselves.
To restore relationship to your body?
To be able to trust your body's cues and stay present. To tolerate the discomfort and stay within yourself.
