About Jill

Jill Tanis is a personal story in motion, sharing the good news that it is possible to experience true freedom from weighing, dieting, obsessing, counting, and living in a body with pent-up blame, guilt, shame, and victimhood.

At age 20, she found herself completely malnourished, profoundly depressed, and fighting the most intense eating disorder. With an open and willing heart in pursuit of healing, Jill discovered the power of non-conventional therapies that deeply changed and healed her from the inside-out, discovering lasting freedom with food and body. No more counting, obsessing, dieting, or weighing.

From this experience, she discovered her life’s passion to help women create lasting mindful transformation with food and body and soul. It isn’t a quick fix. She holds space for the deep work to be done and sits alongside you, exactly where you are, with love, grace, and undivided attention.

A playful, curious spirit and lover of delicious food and life around the table, Jill will inspire and challenge you to show up fully for yourself with honesty, authenticity, and love.
