Hi! I’m Meag.
I’m passionate about plant-based nutrition, fitness & rocking that simple lifestyle finance. I’m finally pursuing my dream to help others design a healthy, happy life they love.
When I was 16, I was diagnosed with non-cystic fibrosis bronchiectasis, a rare lung disease (in my case congenital) that caused damage to about 25% of my lung tissue. It also creates a daily cough that sounds like I’ve been smoking for years.
Growing up, my condition was a source of embarrassment and used to limit what I was able to do physically. I avoided challenges because I didn’t want to feel uncomfortable and inadequate. I tried to hide it from others, especially during those awkward teenage years.
In my early twenties, I woke up. I reconnected with my badass partner Ben and he shared his passion for the wilderness. We went on our first hike together.
I tried to play it cool but I barely made it up the mountain with the condition of my lungs. Ben kept me going.
For once I felt like I could be myself and push through the challenge. What else could I do?
I may have taught Ben how to wrangle his finances but he taught me to trust & fight for my health. He rocks.
My journey developed into years of research and a deep dedication to shaping my diet and exercise habits. Now I’m able to fire up and down a mountain and run for miles with a smile!
I’ve seen first hand the impact of choice + commitment.
I have my B.S. in Accounting but only lasted five months in the field. I blame the dress pants.
I thrive on change, creative energy and impact. I gravitated toward tourism & marketing most recently in my career.
I taught myself WordPress and the Adobe Creative Suite and started freelancing in 2016. Now, I hope to write/create valuable tools and resources from my journey to help others and keep on learning along the way… Stay tuned for my vegan recipes and posts about our thru-hike training!
