Hi, I’m Amanda, a professional speaker, an author, and a passionate storyteller. I love mac & cheese, thunderstorms, dark roast coffee, The Lumineers, and my rescue dog, Haylie. I worked as an actor in Hollywood for five years until severe depression and bulimia took over my life.
My road of recovery has been the hardest thing I’ve ever taken on, and there’s been countless times I’ve felt so fucking alone. In crowds full of people. In rooms with clinicians. At dinners with my family. In the isolation and darkness of my own mind.
There’s things I wish I’d known would be affected by my recovery, like: dating, money, friendships, my home, my work, basically, every single thing in my life.
Recoveredish dives into those things so that you don’t have to experience them alone, so you have some semblance of what to expect and how to move through them and that you’re in amazing company.
Those on the path to recovery are my favorite people. The people who have walked through hell and chosen to come back from it. I honor you. I root for you. I love you.
