Today I’ve got my rockstar sister Samantha Skelly baring her wild soul in the name of women all over the world who suffer from or struggle with binge eating. Sam was a dancer growing up and never had any body issues until she stopped dancing in her twenties and had a rude awakening around food and movement. Now she leads a global movement creating awareness, programs and support for those with similar issues. She’s also a super spunky spitfire personality with the most gorgeous hair I’ve ever seen and a killer personality to boot.

This is a high energy session, buckle up!
