Highlights

Experience

Throughout her many roles, Meg has always been planted firmly in the gear space. She's an ACE certified personal trainer and brings that knowledge with her to find the best types of fitness products. In her prior roles at Gear Patrol and SELF, she handled fitness challenges, run clubs, and lots of gear testing. She's down to try any workout class—from dance cardio to HIIT to weight training—and is more than happy to suggest a class or two to take based on your personal interests. Prior to Dotdash, she wrote for Gear Patrol, SELF, Women’s Running, The Field Mag, and Glamour. 

She enjoys iced lattes all year long and loves to run along the West Side Highway.

Education

Meg holds a Bachelor of Arts in Communications from Villanova University.
