About Sheila Hageman

Sheila is the ultimate survivor and risk taker—she’s a former stripper and nude model who became her college valedictorian, a yoga instructor, a writing teacher, an author, a mother and a Body Image Expert. She lives with her husband, three children, father-in-law and three cats in CT. She teaches writing at University of Bridgeport and Housatonic Community College and squeezes in some acting when she can. Her memoir, Stripping Down, February 2012, from Pink Fish Press, is a meditation on womanhood and body image. Her Decision-Making Guide and Self-Discovery Journal, The Pole Position: Is Stripping for You? (And How to Stay Healthy Doing It), Every Day Create, December 2011, helps women to further value their own identities through their quest to understand their motivations for stripping. She blogs about her stripper past, motherhood, body image and other women’s issues at StrippingDown.com or you can follow her on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/AuthorSheilaHageman or Twitter: @SheilaMHageman. Sheila has appeared on numerous TV shows including Today Show, ABC News, NBC News, and as an expert on Bill Cunningham and Anderson Cooper. She has been featured on Salon, Mamalode, Mom Babble, Say It With A Bang, She Knows and The Huffington Post. She has a novel, Beautiful Something Else, forthcoming 2016 from 48Fourteen.
