Health & Wellness Coach
Transforming Illness to Wellness
Through Empowerment, Education, and Support
for Women With Fibromyalgia
Hi, I'm Meghan!
Fibromyalgia completely changed my life. In a good way.
I prioritize my health and rely on lifestyle medicine to keep symptoms in check. After spending many years dedicated to healing, I decided to follow my passion for helping other women with fibromyalgia feel better and became a health coach. Spoonie Mom is for hope, healing, and wellness. Find out more About Me.
What's a Spoonie?
Living with a chronic illness is often hard to explain—especially one that’s not visible. Pain, depression, fatigue, anxiety, digestive problems, sensitivities, and migraines can come out of nowhere and leave us sitting on the sidelines of life or putting on a brave smile and faking the funk. It’s difficult for people to understand what they can't see and haven't felt. Christine Miserandino, an award-winning blogger with Lupus, used a handful of spoons as units of energy to explain how every task demands a certain amount of mental, emotional, and physical energy and how quickly those with chronic illness can run out of it or wake up with a fraction of what someone normally has. Some days, getting out of bed, brushing hair, and even putting on clothes can be too much. This analogy and accepting how to manage my illness became my vehicle for recovery.

Coaching is a practice that increases clarity, possibilities, growth, and positivity supporting sustainable, lasting change; it develops efficacy and resiliency to withstand environmental stressors that influence behaviors and adapt to maintain health and wellness. Coaching is a partnership that relies on the coach and client to be present, focused, forthright, and mindful. The client is in the driver's seat, and the coach's job is to help the client have a better view of the road ahead. Coaching creates a safe space to organize, develop, and process our thoughts, feelings, and actions enabling room and structure to form intentional direction in our journey through life.
