As a competitive swimmer in high school, Megan became interested in learning how food could improve her performance. Unfortunately, the information she received from coaches was unspecific and often left her with more questions than answers. Even as Megan entered adulthood, she still felt confused by the mixed messages she received from family, friends, and the media about diet and exercise. Eventually, she decided enough was enough and pursued a Master’s degree in clinical nutrition. She loves that she can now apply evidence-based research to optimize her patients’ (and her own!) health and athletic performance. Before joining the Culina Health team, Megan worked as a Manager at Montefiore Medical Center.
Patient-centered, collaborative, and entirely judgment-free. Megan strives to create a safe space in which she helps patients make incremental and sustainable changes that will suit their personal needs and lifestyles.
In her spare time, Megan enjoys snuggling up on the couch with a cup of coffee and a good book, taking exercise classes at her local gym, cooking or baking up a storm in the kitchen, or indulging in a movie marathon. A few favorites include Lord of the Rings (extended edition!), the Harry Potter movies, and anything from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
