Crystal Campoverde, National Blog Manager
Having walked through her journey of recovery from anorexia, Crystal is incredibly grateful for her Project HEAL family and honored to manage the blog. As a feminist, she is unequivocally committed to ensure that Project HEAL blog provides those in recovery "epistemic authority" in a safe space. That is, the blog positions those in recovery in an empowering position to generate knowledge claims, through their writing, to speak authentically about their lived experience. She believes vulnerability through blogging encourages others in their healing to lead a fulfilling, redemptive life.
In May 2014, she graduated from Harvard University Extension with a Bachelor's degree in Psychology. She is currently pursuing a Masters degree in Teaching Elementary Education at Rollins College, in Winter Park, Florida. She teaches Kindergarten (her first passion) and is a children's yoga instructor.
Crystal's favorite quote is “I am not my sister’s keeper. I am my sister. When my sister hurts, I hurt. When my sister heals, I heal.” — Spiritual leader Iyalana Vanzant
