Jennifer Baumgartner

Jennifer Baumgartner PsyD, author of YOU ARE WHAT YOU WEAR, was always fascinated by the internal reasons for our clothing choices. Having had a history of working in fashion and trained as a psychologist, she decided to blend both of her passions to create a new way examining what we wear, the Psychology of Dress. In addition to running her wardrobe consulting business, InsideOut, Dr. B specializes in the treatment of mood, anxiety, substance, and eating disorders. Her focus of clinical research is exercise adherence, nutrition, and psychological wellness among children and adults with obesity. She works with popular media outlets, including radio, print, and television, offering information to improve wellness. Most recently, she is the writer and on-air-host of the television program, A Better You with Dr. Baumgartner (2012) through University of the District of Columbia. Dr. Jennifer Baumgartner's book, YOU ARE WHAT YOU WEAR (Da Capo April 2012) that examines the link between our external appearance and internal experience, is now available for preorder.
