Julie Allen is the CEO of Mary Rose NW Boutique and founder at the Mary Rose Foundation. She is an author and eating disorder awareness activist. Allen started Mary Rose NW Boutique because she recognized the need for a clothing boutique that focused on body positivity, self-love/acceptance, and helping all bodies feel beautiful and confident in their clothes. Julie struggled with anorexia and bulimia for 15 years and has made it her mission to empower women to love and embrace themselves wholeheartedly.
The Mary Rose Foundation is a non-profit 501c3 designed to help people who are struggling with the financial burden of eating disorder treatment and works on the prevention side as well with their large outreach programs. Julie's message is simply one of strength, courage, self-compassion, and most of all, hope.
