Sue Klassen currently lives in Virginia in the United States, and has been a Family Nurse Practitioner for more than 26 years. Most recently her clinical work has focused on women’s health.
Sue and her husband Johann Zimmermann have a 26 -year-old daughter and 24 year-old son. They attribute their son’s health and wellbeing to the help they received from F.E.A.S.T. ten years ago, when he developed anorexia. Learning about family based treatment was a life-saver.
More than five years ago Sue started a local support group for family and friends of loved ones with eating disorders; it meets twice a month.
Over the years she has presented about EDs and FBT to health care providers, school educators and administrators, church groups, and students. She has attended numerous ED conferences (F.E.A.S.T, NEDA, iaedp, AED, Johns Hopkins) to stay up-to-date on research and new information.
She enjoys participating on F.E.A.S.T’s international board of directors, continuing to promote evidence-based treatment and supporting families.
