Meet Torie and Our New Podcast!


My name is Torie and I am a new co-host of Friend to Yourself Podcast.

Dr. Quijada and I are thrilled to be launching this podcast, and we’re so excited for you guys to see what we have planned.

Before continuing, here is some of this and that to get to know me.

I was born and raised in Southern California. I am the oldest of three girls, and studying for a psychobiology major with a minor in nutritional sciences. Mental health advocacy is my passion, especially in multicultural communities where mental health and illnesses are stigmatized, and in Eating Disorders recovery.

I absolutely love going to Padres games. But even more so, I am obsessed with my new English Bulldog, Keilani. On the weekends, you can find me and Keilani at the beach or local coffee shop. 

Both Dr. Quijada and I have been working hard to create content for our subscribers. Our podcast will focus on self-care as practiced in daily life struggles and wins, eating disorder recovery, and mental health from a biological perspective.

We’re getting some final things settled and our first episode should be out very soon! Please suggest or ask anything. We would love to hear you.
