Buy for $3.99 Excerpt

My name is Doris Cowan (Rake) My current job titles include Activities Officer at RFBI, Owner of “Get Up And Go Fitness” – Personal Training and Founder of 3R’S Homeless Shelter project in Coffs Harbour.

I was born and bred in Orange NSW and left there to try and get away from the memories of my Dad’s suffering before his death in 2005.

Although I still undertake studies on occasion, my highest level of education is an Advanced Diploma of Hospitality Management.

My ideal audience that I would like to target with my written journey on anorexia would be youth and athletes of all ages and patients of eating disorder institutes in an attempt for prevention of anorexia rather than cure, but also hope as once ED takes hold it is very difficult to overcome yet not impossible.

I have many personal goals such as opening a Homeless Shelter to help with the current housing crisis in Coffs Harbour, yet one of my priority goals to follow on from the launch of my book would be to be an advocate for education and prevention of eating disorders on a global level.

My professional goals include all of my current job titles having a similar purpose, and that is to keep learning about the people I work with in an attempt to assist them in becoming the best version of themselves in the present.

I have been fortunate enough in my life before anorexia to achieve many wonderful accomplishments such as owning my own business, completing the Kokoda trail and possible the most rewarding was being a single mum to the most amazing son and daughter any parent could wish for.
