Bronwen lives in Melbourne, Australia. She works full time and is the sole parent of a young adult daughter and two dogs She joined the Around the Dinner Table forum in 2010 as a desperate parent when her daughter became ill with anorexia at 13. She found great support there and in 2013 joined as a moderator. She became lead moderator in 2017.
Bronwen’s daughter required numerous hospitalisations due to medical instability, and has mostly recovered through a combination of hospital and home refeeding, medication and therapy.
She was shocked when her daughter first became ill at how little she or anyone else she knew understood eating disorders.
She continues to volunteer for F.E.A.S.T. as she believes that all parents need the same support she received, and that knowledge is power.
