Hello and Welcome global friends!
My name is Megan and I am the Integrative Registered Dietitian, Global Health Consultant, and founder of The Well Essentials and The Well Co. consulting located here in beautiful Boston, Massachusetts.
With a background focused in regenerative food systems, and global food security, I am passionate about helping individuals learn how to make compassionate choices that are good for our bodies and the global environment.
I believe that we are meant to live in a world where health and happiness go together. Where food is meant to nourish our bodies and re-connect us with our culture. Where our choices are routed deeply in intention and social responsibility, and where one person is capable of positively impacting the world around them.
You will always find me with a positive outlook on life, as I truly believe that in order to be a true change maker, one must also be an eternal optimist. I am on a mission to help others discover what it means to re-connect with their food, their daily choices, and their bodies to create a meaningfully sustainable healthy life, and in the process connect more with the world around them.
Lastly, I believe that by rethinking our relationship with food, and how we choose to consume, we can not only change how we view the world, but more importantly how we impact it.
