Shannon Cutts is the author of Beating Ana: How to Outsmart Your Eating Disorder and Take Your Life Back, the first book to address the critical role a recovered person, or mentor, can play in a recovering person’s support team.

In 2009, Shannon founded MentorCONNECT, the first global nonprofit eating disorders mentoring organization, which operated for 8 years to introduce how peer mentoring could work in an eating disorders recovery setting.

MentorCONNECT is based on the mentoring principles outlined in “Beating Ana.”

When she is not blogging here, speaking, writing, and mentoring, Shannon is busy being the proud mommy of a 17-year-old parrot, a 3-year-old tortoise and a 5-year-old box turtle.
