Meredith has been an athlete her whole life, but always struggled to feel comfortable with her body and often felt like she was chasing body acceptance. She got into nutrition in college when she signed up for an elective beer brewing course. She assumed it would be an easy class to check off a general science requirement. Plot twist: It was hard. Fortunately, the challenging course, which was heavy on topics like biochemistry and food science, piqued her interest in the science behind how food (and, er, drink) affects the body. Who knew a beer brewing course would lead Meredith to land on pursuing a Master’s in Clinical Nutrition? Before joining the team at Culina Health, Meredith worked in graphic design and food media.
Direct, supportive, and no-nonsense. While Meredith is a whiz at calories and macros, she knows it doesn’t all come down to the numbers. She also focuses on non-scale goals with her patients, beginning sessions by highlighting markers of progress off the scale and other wins for the week.
In her spare time, Meredith enjoys sleeping in, going to the gym, grabbing delicious meals with her friends, and inventing new recipes to share with her patients.
