Jason was born in South Korea in 1970, only 18 years after the end of the Korean War. When Jason was 5 years old, his parents moved their family to the United States. Starting a new life with Jason and his two younger sisters in a foreign country and culture was a struggle for their whole family and Jason’s father developed alcoholism.Throughout Jason’s childhood, he experienced many of the challenges immigrants face when coming to the U.S., including racism, anger and separation. These experiences were both traumatic and deep seated. Everything was chaotic and unpredictable. During this time, Jason discovered that he could control one thing— his grades. Jason learned quickly that feeling in control and achieving was a way to get recognition and the praise of parents, teachers, and peers alike. He had no control over his environment, as his dad’s alcoholism dictated that the family move every 2-4 years. Jason never felt at home anywhere. He developed anxiety and depression at an early age which was undiagnosed until he was twenty-three. Jason developed a dependence on alcohol, endured broken relationships that have been devastating, experienced the painful death of loved ones, and has survived a traumatic automobile accident. He has explored many methods of healing including physical, mental/psychological, and spiritual. He attributes his work in the Twelve Steps of AA, embracing spirituality—especially in Eckhart Tolle’s teachings and the teachings of ACIM—A Course in Miracles—to his continuing recovery of body, mind, and spirit. Jason helps others by sharing his journey and by being a supportive friend to others who struggle. He currently lives on the East Coast of the US with his cats Jiji and Muta.

Jackie Patmore's involvement in the eating disorders field spans multiple roles of researcher, educator, clinician and patient advocate. Before occupying these roles, however, it was her personal experience of developing anorexia as an elite volleyball player when she was 14 years old that ignited her desire to enter the field in the first place. As a patient, Jackie was subject to care that lacked an evidence base, was nearly impossible to access, and was void of cultural sensitivity. Early awareness of these and other gaps in treating and understanding eating disorders drove her to harness her own experience, education, and professional pursuits to improve conditions and treatment options for eating disorder sufferers. As a researcher at the Washington University in St. Louis School of Medicine, Jackie was involved with studies that implemented evidence-based treatments for eating disorders in clinical settings. She assisted in the creation of online Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) interventions and assisted in projects providing Family Based Treatment for children with Anorexia and Binge Eating disorder. Additionally, Jackie helped to establish Interpersonal Psychotherapy (IPT) as a primary treatment for eating disorders, depression and anxiety in university clinics nationwide.Jackie has worked in a variety of mental health treatment centers including private and hospital-based, outpatient and inpatient eating disorder clinics. Throughout her time in clinical practice, she has also been involved in advocacy efforts to increase insurance and federal coverage of eating disorder treatments in Missouri, Texas, and New York. Jackie has also lectured and taught course sections at Columbia University, Hunter College, and NYU. She enjoys teaching on the topics of eating disorders, evidence-based interventions, and dynamic forms of psychotherapy. Currently, Jackie is a PhD candidate at Columbia University’s Clinical Psychology Program and manages the Somatic Expressions of Pain Lab, supervising master's students on research initiatives related to sexual abuse, trauma, substance use, self-injury, and eating disorders. Her lab has presented at international conferences and published studies related to lying and deception about issues of eating and body image in treatment, cultural considerations for the treatment of eating disorders, and the use of peer supports in the treatment of eating disorders. Our Hosts:Linda and John (Jack) Mazur wrote, Emilee: The Story of a Girl and Her Family Hijacked by Anorexia, to honor their daughter’s wish, to raise awareness, evoke compassion, and foster change in how eating disorders are viewed and treated.

Episode #113Things I’ve Seen People Do With and Without FoodDebra Spector M.S, R.D.N, C.D.NDebra Spector M.S, R.D.N, C.D.N is a Registered and Certified Dietitian-Nutritionist who has upheld a private practice since 1990 on Long Island, New York (Nassau and Suffolk Counties) as a nutritional therapist, mentor, educator, entrepreneur, and consultant. She holds an Undergraduate Degree from SUNY at Oneonta and received her master’s degree along with completing her Internship at Long Island University. Debra specializes in eating disorders and treats adults, teenagers and adolescents. Her philosophy is meeting everyone’s needs individually and guiding them to achieve a normal relationship with food, weight, and body image. In addition, Debra strongly believes in guiding teenagers and adolescents away from the “good food vs. bad food” or “healthy vs. unhealthy” philosophy and to encourage them to find a way to make “all foods fit”. Debra also authored the book, The Things I’ve Seen People Do With and Without Food which has recently been chosen to receive The Pinnacle Book Achievement Award, as one of the Best Books in Health category, winter 2022. Her decision to put together this book of collections was primarily based upon the fact that she believes most people who struggle with eating disorders are either silently struggling alone or misunderstood. Debra believes everyone who struggles with an eating disorder should find their inner voice and be heard. More importantly, she wants those suffering to know that they are not alone. Debra Spector,MS,RDN,CDNProfessional Facebook page:https://www.facebook.com/debraspectormsrdncdnWebsite:www.debraspector.comInstagram:@debraspectormsrdncdnBook: The Things I’ve Seen People Do With And Without Food https://www.amazon.com/dp/0578981807/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_awdb_imm_ADZA3X8Q844ZMJ2DH8NMLinks for Our Hosts:Linda and John (Jack) Mazur wrote, Emilee: The Story of a Girl and Her Family Hijacked by Anorexia, https://www.amazon.com/Emilee-Story-Family-Hijacked-Anorexia/dp/170092012X to honor their daughter’s wish, to raise awareness, evoke compassion, and foster change in how eating disorders are viewed and treated.

#110 - Jane was born and raised in London, in what can only be described as a very ‘normal’ household, with four siblings, and a mum and dad, who quite simply, adored each other, and still do! There was always a pet of some kind in their household. Nothing remarkable happened, certainly no great traumas, yet, at the age of 11, Jane developed a serious eating disorder. It wasn’t until age 35, that Jane got a handle on recovery, thanks in no small part, to the best dog to ever walk the planet – a beautiful, soulful, rescue bulldog named Crystal. That special dog taught Jane the true meaning of unconditional love and gave her the courage to join life again. The endless cycle of hospital admissions stopped, and for the last 15 years Jane has worked in the field of mental health and substance misuse, campaigning for better services, developing projects to challenge stigma, and educate people about mental illness. Jane is passionate about a fairer welfare system for low-income families, and she is currently employed by a wonderful organization which helps people access financial and emotional support, as well as practical services. Jane’s main ‘love’ in life, outside of her work, is and always has been, animals. She spends every moment of her spare time with her crazy greyhound, Daisy.  Jane also enjoys reading, watching ‘rubbish’ TV, and spending time with her family. Our HostsLinda and John (Jack) Mazur wrote the book, Emilee-The Story of a Girl and Her Family Hijacked by Anorexia, https://www.amazon.com/Emilee-Story-Family-Hijacked-Anorexia/dp/170092012X to honor their daughter’s wish, to raise awareness, evoke compassion, and foster change in how eating disorders are viewed and treated.
