I recently had the pleasure of interviewing with the owners of wearebird.co. I loved being able to share my experiences in the social media industry, my take on living a healthy lifestyle and the upside to getting into a new industry.

Here are some excerpts from my interview:
Do you think there’s been a change in how the media portrays women’s health?
I think it’s starting to change. We need to be accepting of all body types—and there’s a lot of “fat shaming” out there. I don’t think hating on anyone is good, but I think you do need to educate people on being healthy. You want to be healthy and feel good, so how do we weave in the message that every body size is healthy, too?
People think fat equals unhealthy.
What does “fat” mean to someone in Hollywood versus someone in the Midwest? The focus should be on maintaining a healthy weight and feeling good, whatever works for your body type. It’s definitely moving in the right direction in terms of holding the media accountable.
What’s the best piece of advice you could give?
I’m such a health and fitness nut, so I think making your health a priority would be my biggest piece of advice. If you’re getting the right amount of sleep, eating right, and getting some exercise then you’re going to feel so much better and have a better attitude about life.
My other piece of advice would be to love your job. Find a job that fits with your passions and is authentic to you.
