Chris Ayres

Chris is a husband, father, engineer and a survivor of Anorexia Nervosa.  He’s been married for eleven years and has four kids.  After winning the battle with his eating disorder, he was able to step into his authentic self.  In doing so, he discovered his passion to use his life to heal others.  He dreams of attending medical school one day to earn the privilege of caring for others.  In his spare time, he loves to enjoy the great Colorado outdoors, garden, and build his army of robots to clean his house! Chris also serves on Eating Recovery Center’s Recovery Ambassador Council and loves sharing his story of recovery with others.
