A Joyful Journey...

Join Doris Smeltzer, critically acclaimed author/educator, as she muses on topics from eating disorders to the mysteries of life. Often "Featured" are select, astute observations made by Andrea during her all too brief 19-year life…it is she who taught us: the joy IS in the journey!

 

Author, activist, career educator, and international speaker, Doris Smeltzer is the President of Andrea’s Voice Foundation, a non-profit founded following her daughter’s eating disordered death. Smeltzer holds a master’s in counseling psychology, with published works including the book, Andrea’s Voice, this blog/web site, and numerous published pieces in newspapers, magazines, and books including an article in the landmark, Treatment of Eating Disorders (Academic Press, 2010). Smeltzer has been featured in popular media (TV, radio, film), has been named a Community Hero by both her hometown of Napa, and the North Bay eating disorder organization, EDRS and awarded the Soroptimist Ruby Award for Women Helping Women.
