Courtnay Mecca, MS, CNS, LDN
Courtnay is a Baltimore area Licensed Nutritionist with a Master of Science in Nutrition and Integrative Health from the Maryland University of Integrative Health. Her love and passion for good food, health, and wellness led her to start her next journey in life in nutrition. After her son reached 2 years of age, she was sick and tired of her child and herself being sick and tired all the time and decided to leave her engineering career and enter nutrition school to get the answers she had been looking for believing in the power of food and lifestyle to heal. As a result of learning what foods she needed to replenish nutrients she was lacking, identifying food sensitivities, improving digestion, and managing long-standing stress, she was able to regain her energy and minimize the migraines she had been suffering from for decades.
She believes that there is no one way of eating that fits all, and dieting should be ditched, and we should eat food that not only tastes good but does us good. Small changes lead to big changes and shifts. The path to wellness and nutrition is not linear as life itself gives us challenges to overcome. She hopes to help others navigate roadblocks to their health through diet and lifestyle changes while giving her clients lifelong tools to empower them towards better health. Outside of being a mom to her two kids, she is a health and wellness coach, yoga teacher, and spends her free time experimenting in the kitchen making healthy snacks and meals for her family and spending time in nature.
