Why is Meghan a registered dietitian nutritionist?
“I love helping assist others in their health and wellness goals, and watching the incredible life transformations that can be achieved by making small, realistic changes!”
I have worked as a dietitian nutritionist in a wide variety of settings including a urology health clinic, hospitals, medical weight loss, body composition testing, and for a public school district. Working with a large and diverse population has increased my skills and knowledge in the field.
Meghan’s mantra is: “Nutrition can be either the cure or the cause of all physical and mental ailment.”
How does Meghan stay healthy?
Meghan believes in work-life balance as an essential part of staying physically and mentally healthy. She believes that all foods can fit into the diet if balanced correctly. Aside from being a group fitness junkie, she enjoys getting a daily dose of Vitamin D from the sun…spending time in the great outdoors: gardening, boating, hiking, biking and running.
