Hi, my name is Megan! I am a mother, partner, and business owner. I have worked in health and wellness for the past 13 years. My journey started in research and from there I became a yoga instructor, licensed acupuncturist, and now the owner of a healthy meal prep service. My mission in this life is to learn and share with as many people as I can how to live a well balanced life and reconnect with the land we inhabit.
