Hi! I'm Megan
I am a civilian Registered Dietitian and Personal Trainer on a mission to help first responders optimize performance, recover faster, and enjoy long, healthy retirements. My background in wellness and graphic design has allowed me to lead engaging health campaigns for first responders.
First responders face unique challenges when it comes to health. These challenges have inspired me to create targeted, realistic solutions throughout the lifecycle of a first responder's career. I thrive on translating complicated health information into manageable lifestyle changes that fit into an unpredictable shift.
My interest in a first responder's lifestyle has contributed to my success with CPAT participants, recruits, incumbents, and leadership. My health coaching participants have lost an average of 14 pounds, up to 8% body fat, and up to a 30-point reduction in cholesterol. I have created a recruit nutrition curriculum that has effectively eliminated rhabdomyolysis and hydration-related injury in the past five recruit classes.
I believe in a “boots on the ground” approach to wellness. I have trained for and passed CPAT, and am always up for a ride-along or a fitness challenge. I can often be found at a station or academy teaching nutrition, fitness, mobility, or just hanging out to learn more about firefighters.
I am currently working full time with Fairfax County Fire and Rescue in Virginia. I provide freelance counseling, presentations, and am always interested in a challenge. Reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org to connect!
