Hi, my name is Robyn Cruze. Okay, it’s Robyn Cruze-Harrington if I’m going to get technical, much to hubby’s dismay. I chose to have ‘Harrington’ tagged onto my maiden name because it was my way of running from my marriage just in case I needed to. Kind of like packing a parachute for a domestic flight just in case the plane was going down. It’s rare but possible, right?
During my past life (my twenties) I was a professional TV and film actor. It was my first passion and a craft. I spent as much time perfecting my acting skills as much as I spent time perfecting the behavior of an eating disorder (which was a lot!)
I’ve had many turning points in my life, from recovering from an eating disorder to becoming a mom who gave up booze. But hey, I still have caffeine. All of these turning points have left me with a calling that got louder and louder. The calling said, “own, honor and speak your truth, for “who am I not to?” So that’s what I’, doing.
I’m an Australian living and working in Denver, Colorado. By day I am an eating disorder and body-image recovery advocate, educator and public speaker. By night I am a mom of two daughters, a wife, and a dreamer.
I’ve written a couple of books: Making Peace with Your Plate (co-authored with the wonderful Espra Andrus) and Lovely Dreams. As a professional I write, speak and educate on co-occurring eating disorder and substance use disorder recovery as well as on building a healthy relationship with your body and the food you put in it.
