about the founders

Tom and Doris Smeltzer are Andrea’s parents. Tom with a Master's Degree in Educational Administration and Doris with a Master's in Counseling Psychology are career educators. Now retired from the local school district, Doris devotes 100% of her time to eating disorder prevention through Andrea's Voice Foundation. Tom, too, focuses more attention on their non-profit’s efforts following his retirement as a Professor from a local college in Northern California.

Doris authored Andrea's Voice: Silenced by Bulimia and wrote for 7 years a popular "Advice for Parents" blog for her publishers, Gürze Books, until focusing on her own A Joyful Journey blog. She hosted the VoiceAmerica™ Radio Show, Savor Yourself...beyond skin deep, has been named a Community Hero by both her hometown of Napa, and the NorthBay ED organization, EDRS and awarded the Soroptimist Ruby Award for Women Helping Women. Together, she and Tom co-authored an Article in the book, Treatment of Eating Disorders: Bridging the Research-Practice Gap, (Academic Press, 2010), and appeared in the 2007 award-winning documentary, "America the Beautiful: Is America Obsessed with Beauty?"  (Contact Us)
