She walked into the room on a Tuesday morning, sat down, and calmly and confidently, told me that my heart is good. It’s her job to deliver news like that. She is a cardiac Nurse Practitioner, after all. Thankfully, the news was reassuring – an auspicious first meeting!
Since then, I have been lucky to have many more conversations with Megan and always love them. She’s so positive and joyful. But when we reconnected for this latest family portrait update, there was something new that clearly had her fired up. She has been helping people get healthy for a long time, but now she had added a new modality to her roster of tools.
Since I’d last seen her, she had become a certified Habits of Health coach with OPTAVIA. It’s the opposite of gimmicky, quick fix weight loss programs, because it comprehensively helps folks affect lasting change with some serious supportive scaffolding surrounding them. You can hear her passion as she talks about how she feels truly grateful to be able to help transform lives with lifestyle changes that avert illness, rather than treating people after they’re already sick. Her eyes light up when she talks about it and she radiates hope and optimism. Seeing her so aligned with her purpose made me feel really happy for her, not to mention her clients.
Yet, as fulfilled as her work makes her, nothing lights up Megan more than Matt and Amelia. They are a dynamic trio! And when you include Caterina and Cleocatra (stuffed cats that replicate feline family members), and even a few M&M’s, Amelia lights up the most! Being with these three is always such a treat.
