Serena Nangia BA She/Her

Serena Nangia (she/her) is a Body Activist, long-time advocate for eating disorder recovery, and Senior Marketing & Communications Manager for the eating disorder nonprofit Project HEAL. She has spent close to a decade building expertise on the way body image, media, and eating disorders affect people’s daily lives, as well as how Fatphobia and weight stigma create issues of access and discrimination systemically and interpersonally. Serena has taught twenty-four classes with over 800 participants and continues to educate herself. She recognizes the integral role Black, Fat people have played in her growth and actively works to elevate diverse voices of People of Color and Fat people. Serena’s inspiration comes from her sister, Ellen, who struggled with an eating disorder for over a decade and is now in long-term recovery.
