This is a Q&A with the Meredith Whole Living Centers newest team member:
"I am Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) and Licensed Dietitian (LD). I received my Bachelor’s degree in Nutritional Science with a concentration in dietetics from Boston University. Afterwards, I completed my Dietetic Internship through the University of New Hampshire. I spend much of my free time researching nutrition. I can't get enough! But I also love activity (running, skiing, slack lining, yoga, etc.), going to coffeeshops, and preparing nutritious food for friends and family."
What do you like most about Meredith Whole Living Center?
I love that the center combines many factors that contribute to living a complete and healthy lifestyle. Nutrition, meditation, activity, muscle relaxation, etc. make a big difference on their own, but when all of these aspects are addressed together it can bring health and wellness to another level. Often times these factors are interrelated, and it makes perfect sense for each to be available in one space.
What is your favorite service to RECEIVE at The Center?
Yoga classes are my favorite service to receive because they offer the opportunity to pause and re-center amidst a busy lifestyle.
How do you define "Living Whole"?
Living wholly is making space for all that you require to feel complete, healthy, and happy: focusing on choosing whole foods when preparing meals, making time for friends and family outside of work, and making time to do the things you love and require to feel recharged and relaxed. Without all of these things you begin to lose a sense of self and drive for life.
What Three Core Values you hold:
What principles or philosophy have guided your life?
Don’t take life too seriously. Life is meant to be enjoyed and cherished, not full of stress and strife, especially over the little things.
Positivity, optimism, and kindness can truly make all the difference.
Strong, positive relationships are essential to a full and happy life.
Live your life. I love nutrition because I know that when we eat healthily we feel good, and when we feel good we are happier and have more energy to live fully.
Look at things from all different points of view.
