Episode 058: Ioana Aboumitri

In today’s episode, I speak with Ioana Aboumitri. Ioana is the founder of Kelani, a Polynesian inspired wellness company. Descending from a ‘royal’ family in Samoa, her grandfather was the paramount chief of a region of the island. With a deep connection to her ancestors, Ioana’s mission is to spread their spirit, with Kelani as her vessel.

Ioana is also a passionate proponent of mental health awareness and action, specifically in the area of eating disorders. Having suffered from eating disorders almost her entire life and having recently taken strides in her own healing journey, she is on a mission to bring awareness to this very serious issue, as well as to promote a safe, body positive, inclusive environment not only for her clientele, but for all those she interacts with.

⁠Today, Ioana walks us through her struggles with an eating disorder and how she’s stepping away from her scale and finding freedom in life.
