Hi there! I’m Tara Criscuolo, a brand marketer; mental health educator; and disordered eating speaker, writer, and resource provider based in Portland, OR. I've recovered from an eating disorder, and my healing journey – paired with the loss of a close friend to suicide – spurred my passion for normalizing mental health, dismantling diet culture, and creating a world that's safe for everyone to show up as their authentic selves.
I kicked off my marketing career at the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP). After four years of working to save lives and bring hope to those affected by suicide, I moved from New Jersey to Oregon to spearhead marketing for Girls Inc. of the Pacific Northwest. Currently, I'm leading marketing efforts for a local creative company.
When I'm not working, I spend my time volunteering for Project HEAL as the National Blog Manager, AFSP Oregon as a Board Member, NAMI Multnomah as a Mental Health Educator, and formerly ANAD as a Peer Recovery Mentor; compiling resources for those struggling with disordered eating; reading; hiking; and snuggling my rescue pup Mazie.
I'd love to chat about opportunities in:
Mental health and/or disordered eating speaking or writing engagements
