(617) 558-1881 ext. 110


Jamie (OJ) Bushell received a BA in comparative literature from Hamilton College and a MS in speech-language pathology from Boston University. OJ created the blog and social media platform, thirdwheelED, to increase the visibility of how eating disorders and other mental illnesses impact an often-marginalized LGBTQIA+ community. OJ worked in the public health field as a project coordinator for three years on a federally funded project that focused on advancing recovery for mental health and substance use disorders. OJ’s work is not only informed by their own lived experience in recovery, but also by their belief in the universal possibility of recovery. OJ is excited to join the MEDA team as the Office and Communications Coordinator to share their passion in preventing and treating eating disorders.
