Kristie developed an eating disorder in her teenage years, competing on the world stage as an elite athlete. She sought treatment in Australia and New Zealand where she became 'functional' in life, but still had constant thoughts about food and body image in her mind. She relapsed again 9 years later and was this time told that she was chronic and should expect to have to 'manage' her eating disorder for the rest of her life.

Not satisfied with this, Kristie researched treatment options and travelled to California to attend treatment at Monte Nido. Immediately stunned by the quality of the program and expertise of the staff she made a wild promise to herself that if she ever recovered, she would set up a residential treatment centre in New Zealand so that others would have access to this level and quality of support.

Firstly, Kristie set up Recovered Living in the USA which provides online and live-in support to people in recovery. Her team of Recovery Coaches are all fully recovered and endlessly dedicated to supporting others to do the same.

Kristie was invited to present at the 2018 TEDx event in New Zealand. Since that time she has been driven to create a charitable residential treatment centre in New Zealand, that operates on a not-for-profit basis.

Recovered Living NZ is on track to open its doors in 2022 with a 6 bed residential and a 6 place day program.

We discuss topics including:

  • Wanting to start a nonprofit eating disorder treatment center in NZ
  • Recovered Living USA and Recovered Living NZ
  • Her experience at other treatment centers
  • Making treatment affordable
  • How the life skills piece at treatment was very helpful towards her recovery and how she will incorporate that into her treatment center
