I've gone through my fair share of trials and tribulations, relating to everything from diet and exercise to men and my hair color.
Some of these experiences happened many years ago, while others are happening right now.
From teaching myself yoga in a college dorm room to enrolling at the IIN in 2017, from pitching myself to a fitness startup while creating my own brand, getting my next Integrative Health Practitioner certification, and finally packing up life as I knew it to travel the world, my curiosity around holistic health and living in true alignment has been inspired by wherever I am in life--
the people, the city, the culture, the seemingly insignificant instances that determine our futures.
I'm here to share with you what I've learned, what I've discovered about myself, and hope that it inspires your own journey of self-discovery.
I hope that you find comfort and encouragement in knowing that life is always about progress, not perfection, and that small, smart changes can lead to great health.
And if there is one thing I hope you can take away from of all this, it is my tried and true mantra: honor yourself everyday.
I'm sure you've figured out by now that I have a lot to say, but I also love to listen. I want to hear your story, how you want it to be, and try my best to help you achieve it.
I'm Meredith, a Boston native embarking on a year (or more!) of global travels while working remotely as a teacher and perpetual student of holistic health and wellness. I’m also a blogger, podcaster, and freelancer, daughter, sister, friend, aunt, and yogi (I know I’m forgetting something ;).
While living in NYC, where I moved right after college to pursue fashion, I knew there was more to life than sitting in an office building and laboring over tasks that didn’t fulfill me or give my life meaning and purpose.
There had to be a way that I could do work that I genuinely loved, that I was good at, and that would help others.
From growing up with various health issues that left me super tuned in to my body, I had an undying curiosity for holistic, naturopathic health. So, I invested in my goals and enrolled at the Institute of Integrative Nutrition, started this blog, and became a part-time health coach. But that’s just the start.
I took it upon myself to be my own first client. I took a good hard look at my lifestyle choices, made some small tweaks, but soon realized I needed to make some BIG changes (que the quarter life crisis).
I broke up with my boyfriend, moved apartments, and left my corporate fashion job in the same 2 weeks. I began working at a fitness startup to get my fitness-loving foot into the wellness world while providing private health and lifestyle guidance through my virtual practice, The HYE Life.
Now, I’m taking my business— and my dream life— full time by traveling the world and helping people feel more alive and well, no matter where they are or where I am.
