About Meghan McGee:

I was blessed to have found a passion for health at an early age. I studied Health and Wellness Promotion and Nutrition in college and graduated with a Bachelor of Science. After graduating, I was unsure how I was going to use my degree and I loved all the knowledge I could get, so I enrolled at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition and got a health coach certification a year later. I dabbled in health coaching and other wellness jobs, but nothing really filled my cup. In my early 20’s I was diagnosed with Lyme disease after many years of searching for answers. During that time, I dove into all the holistic health and nutrition information I could find and built a foundation for myself. Looking back, I am grateful for those experiences because they really fueled my journey to NTI. I graduated from the NFC program in the spring of 2021 and I now teach cooking classes at the University of Colorado Colorado Springs, and I offer private cooking classes in my clients’ homes. I have a deep-rooted passion for slow food and I aspire to continue sharing that passion with my community and beyond.
