Meredith grew up an athlete who learned the hard way that eating 5 plates of pasta before a big game was not the way to help her reach her goals. After years of struggling with health and body image, Meredith’s career in dietetics started the way most do, in a college beer brewing course. The science behind food and nutrition gave Meredith the spark she was looking for and she fell in love with the notion that what we eat is more than just a reflection of how we look (and vice versa.) She believes it’s important to understand how nutrients fuel our mental and physical health to be the best, most confident versions of ourselves.
Meredith completed her undergraduate degree in dietetics at the University of Vermont where she learned to change her mindset from nutrition being a difficult mountain to climb to it being an enjoyable lifestyle. Now she is passionate about helping others do the same. She completed her master’s degree in clinical nutrition at New York University and her clinical training at New York Presbyterian Brooklyn Methodist Hospital. Throughout the years, Meredith has worked in nutrition and media, focusing on taking the science of nutrition and turning it into entertaining, understandable content sprinkled with humor in order to help educate others.
In private practice, her work includes sustainable weight loss, intuitive eating, sports nutrition, disease prevention and management, GI health and men’s and women’s wellness.
Meredith spends her time lifting weights at the gym for the #gains and mental health. When she’s not out exploring nature or a NYC rooftop with friends, she’s home creating tasty, healthy recipes and loves using her art and design skills to decorate and photograph her creations. (Her food art is fully showcased in her cupcake designs.) She knows it can be hard to sift through the health BS on social media, and officially needs to see an optometrist from rolling her eyes so much at Instagram “influencers” promoting diet culture.
