After having dealt with her own 20+ years of eating and body issues ranging from mild frustrations to serious eating disorders, Alli Spotts-De Lazzer became a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor specializing in eating and body image issues. Eventually, she became a Certified Eating Disorders Specialist—the only nationally recognized designation indicating a specialty in eating disorders. She has also co-chaired committees for the International Association of Eating Disorders Professionals ( IAEDP™) and the Academy for Eating Disorders. In 2017, she received the IAEDP Member of the Year award. In 2014, Alli created #ShakeIt for Self-Acceptance! – a series of public events sparking conversations about body, soul, and self-acceptance through fun, inspiration, and flash mob dance. This movement has appeared across America. Highlights include appearing on Capitol Hill and at the Los Angeles Staples Center. July 13, 2017, was recognized as “#ShakeIt for Self-Acceptance! Day” in the City of Los Angeles by Mayor Eric Garcetti.
