Julie Allen

Allen started the Mary Rose Foundation because she understands first hand how expensive and difficult it is to obtain treatment for eating disorders. Julie struggled with anorexia and bulimia for 15 years and has made it her mission to empower women to love themselves and embrace themselves whole heartily. Julie's message is simply one of strength, courage, self-compassion and most of all, hope.
