In this episode we’re happy to welcome Olympian Catherine Garceau on to talk about her experience from the high-pressure arena of being a world class athlete.

She’s had many challenges and barriers along the way, but she’s taken her valuable experience and is now helping others to overcome their body image issues, eating disorders, and emotional eating.
