Megan Sweeney, MPH, RD, LD/N
I believe wholeheartedly that food can be a powerful tool for healing; I’ve seen it in my own life as well as in my work with patients. In fact, I abandoned my plans to attend medical school so that, as a nutrition professional, I could help others pursue health by natural means, using food and nutrition to support their bodies’ innate capacity to heal and thrive. My areas of expertise include weight management, eating disorders and disordered eating, diabetes and prediabetes, gastrointestinal health, and women’s health.
In working with clients, I take a holistic approach to health and wellbeing. I strive to meet individuals where they are, helping them uncover personal barriers and motivations and providing coaching and evidence-based nutrition recommendations to empower them to achieve and sustain improved health.
During the daytime, I work as a clinical research coordinator and dietitian for studies on obesity and diabetes. Outside of work, I enjoy staying active with yoga, weightlifting, and hiking the beautiful natural spaces of North Carolina.
