Nicole’s story is one where she shares how she connected her passion for adventure into overcoming her eating disorder. You may think that traveling to Asia is very different than recovering from an eating disorder but as Nicole shares in her story, just because traveling is fun doesn’t mean that can’t be challenging. Similarly, just because recovery is healthy doesn’t mean that it isn’t incredibly difficult. Each situation pressed her to step bravely into the unknown and address challenges head on. At the end of the day, every adventure begins one step at a time!
Nicole Griswold lives in Seattle, Washington when she is not out exploring new places. As an avid photographer, you can often find her capturing priceless moments of children around the world. Nicole is a Recovery Ambassador Council member and enjoys speaking up about her personal journey with mental illness.
I have ridden a camel through the Sahara Desert
I am ambidextrous but primarily use my left hand
I prefer gas station coffee-- even being from Seattle!
