JR Dietetics

Megan LastName, RDN

Hi! My name is Megan. I recently moved to Colorado from the East Coast in August 2021, and I am very excited to start working with clients to help them live a more nourished and fulfilling life! I have several years of experience as a Registered Dietitian, previously working in both outpatient and hospital/acute care settings and with a wide variety of nutrition-related issues including diabetes/prediabetes, heart disease, renal disease, weight management, gastrointestinal disorders, and more. After finishing my bachelor’s degree in Nutrition and Dietetics and completing a clinical internship in New York, I then moved to Pennsylvania where I worked in the medical nutrition field for seven years before moving to Colorado.

Mission

Are you newly diagnosed with diabetes or heart disease (high cholesterol, heart failure, coronary artery disease, etc)? Are you struggling to get your A1c down? Have you been told to follow a low carb or low salt diet? Confused about carb counting? I know there is a lot of conflicting information on how to lower blood sugar and I would love to help you navigate these issues.

The path to better health can seem exhausting at times. Nutrition can be confusing, and the amount of misinformation available online can make a person’s head spin, even as a dietitian! I’m here to provide you with the tools and resources you need to become more confident in your nutrition and health journey! I have a strong desire to help others improve their relationship with food so that they can live in freedom from the bondage of fear, shame and guilt that is often associated with food. I believe that food is a gift from God, meant not only for nourishment but also our enjoyment! I am truly passionate about nutrition and the way it changes lives! I want to help you set realistic goals that are sustainable in the long term. I do not believe in quick fixes, “one size fits all” diets or restrictive eating. I believe that personalized nutrition and gradual lifestyle change is the pathway to better health. Let’s make your health and wellness goals a reality and get started today!
