Ibbits began her career as part of the original outreach team at Timberline Knolls in 2006, after over 25 years in theatre, tv and commercials. Ibbits joined Oliver-Pyatt Centers in 2011 as Director of Outreach and was then appointed Vice President of Professional Relations for the Oliver-Pyatt Centers, Monte Nido and Clementine Programs in 2016. From the very first, she was a fierce advocate for families and patients.
A founding member and secretary of IAEDP NY, she also served on the Advisory Board of CSAB (Center for the Study of Anorexia and Bulimia) in New York City and on the board of the Binge Eating Disorder Association (BEDA). Since early 2017, Ibbits Newhall Consulting has drawn on vast network of professional relationships to help dozens of families and individuals navigate the full arc of eating disorder treatment from pre-admission to aftercare and beyond.
Ibbits moderated the the IAEDP Symposium 2016 Plenary Panel entitled "It’s Time to Talk About It: Invisible Women / Treating Eating Disorders at Midlife and Beyond" featuring Margo Maine, Karen Samuels and Mary Tantillo. She recently joined forces with Parent Coach Becky Henry, and Wendy Wright LMFT, CEDS Supervisor and Financial Therapist to create The Recovery Roadmap Series for Families.
