Founder/Director The Soul Project

Kristie Dean

“Alex is an incredible speaker. She skillfully blends her ongoing work in higher education, mental health, fitness and holistic wellness. She speaks and coaches about the importance of the mind-body connection, habit formation, nutrition and movement (instead of diet and exercise); and holistic wellness (especially during a time of uncertainty, working from home, and major life transitions), in a funny and relatable way. I cannot recommend Alex enough as a wellness consultant, coach and speaker!”

How Alex used her experiences as an independent student to create F.O.S.T.E.R. Independence Foundation to provide trauma-informed support to college students facing homelessness, food insecurity and family estrangement

"I had no parent information for the FAFSA which bases your aid eligibility on your expected family contribution. This impacted my ability to get aid, campus housing, and register for classes. I worked 80 hours a week, struggled with consistent food and housing, had trouble making friends, was extremely depressed, and lacked the family guidance and emotional support it seemed like everyone else had."

Learn how to navigate diet culture stressors around the holidays

"Remember that you didn’t “break” anything, so you don’t need to “fix” anything. You don’t need to start a new diet, “earn” your food through exercising, or eat less to make up for it.…just go back to eating and moving in ways that feel good. All foods serve a purpose. They’re not good or bad, they’re just food. Chances are, if you’re eating a big holiday meal, it probably means you get to see people you love."

How to rewire your brain and practice body love

"Loving your body seems to be the ultimate goal that social media promotes, right? But they don’t really tell you what that means or how to get there. Does body love mean loving how your body looks or loving your body for what it is? Body gratitude promotes loving your body for what it is, rather than how it looks."

Learn helpful and real strategies to work through an injury or loss of a sport

"You are SO MUCH MORE than an athlete...Remember that your body is strong and resilient and that your current situation is not your final destination. Keep going"

If you wait until you’re burnt out to rest, you’ve waited too long.

I know that our “rest when you’re dead” culture may have taught you otherwise, consistently makes you feel like you’re not doing enough, and tells you that you’re a failure if you aren’t productive 24/7. But I’m calling bull and reminding you that your worth is not tied to your productivity. Fun fact: Research has found that rest not only makes you feel better, but it helps you perform better. Your concentration, creativity, efficiency and task endurance are all correlated with your brain’s ability to recharge.

Find strategies to shred your should shame and to reclaim your worth

"You are the only “you” there is, and your worth isn’t determined by your job, productivity, income, body or anything else."

Figure out WHY you keep getting stuck and LEARN to break free

"You define your wins, and no win is too small. Adding a vegetable to your plate, drinking one more glass of water, or reframing a negative thought are all wins! Remember that you are in control. You got this!"
