As a best-selling author and the director of the inspiring social-change documentary Embrace, Taryn’s global crusade to end the body dissatisfaction epidemic has seen her recognised by UN Women, Amy Poehler’s Smart Girls and the Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media.

Whether motivating the next generation at Google HQ or becoming General Electric’s highest rated speaker, Taryn’s determination to shift the way the world thinks about themselves and their bodies has the support of high profile personalities including Rosie O’Donnell, Ricki Lake and Ashton Kutcher, who famously praised her activism as being “good for the world.”

She loves dancing like no one is watching (even when people are, especially Ellen DeGeneres), channelling her inner child at the skate park with her kids and sharing a joyful life with her hubby in her hometown of Adelaide.
