Dr Herzog, M.D., Founder of Harris Center For Eating Disorder Reasearch

While I was working at DNA Models, I was introduced to Dr. Herzog. He offered a lot of guidance and information about this issue as it impacts models and the fashion world. What I liked about him most was his kind demeanor and his way of approaching the fashion industry on this sensitive subject. It helped that the CFDA and Vogue Magazine’s Anna Wintour were also working to set guidelines and bring the subject to the forefront.

Dr. Herzog found solutions within the industry and avenues for discussion as opposed to bashing and finding fault with everyone involved. I enjoyed being on the sidelines of his forum and was proud that the agency I worked for at the time, took the time to listen and suggest that models participate and lend their voice.
