Originally from Perth, Western Australia, Jaime Maguire is currently traveling around the world on a one way ticket. After exploring South and Central America, she has moved to Canada and is currently living in a small mountain town of Pemberton, British Columbia.
Like many others, from her teens to her early twenties she struggled with poor body image and negative self talk which developed into an eating disorder spanning approximately five years of her life. During this time in her life she attempted to get help using many different avenues without success. She eventually came to terms with the fact that she would have to make it on her own, and she did.
Jaime is a Nutritional Medicine Practitioner and is an ANTA Member. It is now her dream and mission to help others and to provide a place for them to turn in these situations.
On her blog she has been writing about the highs and lows of being a traveling nutritionist. She loves to write research based articles as well as nutrition and travel posts. Her aim now is to focus on continuing education in nutritional psychology and mental health.
