She has been a body image activist for the past 8 years and often uses her body as a political vessel and canvas for her work. In 2015 she stripped down to a black bikini and blindfolded herself with a sign and markers in the farmers market downtown Boise in the name of radical self-acceptance and a video of the performance, along with a blog post she wrote, went viral (to the tune of over 200 million views to date!). Her work and voice as a fat feminist mother gained international attention and she continues fighting for self-love and body positivity as a public speaker and educator, leader of the Boise Rad Fat Collective and founder of RADCAMP: A Body Positive Boot Camp for Feminists & Feminist Teens.
