Megan Wroe, MS, RD, CLEC is the founder of Personal RD and has had experience in clinical, community and educational nutrition for both children and adults. Megan grew up in Orange County and received her Bachelor of Arts degree in English and Spanish from UC Santa Barbara. After graduating, Megan found a passion for nutrition when a family member was suddenly diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. She completed her prerequisites at Fullerton College and went on to earn her Master of Science degree in Nutrition and Food Science from Cal Poly Pomona. Megan was able to use her love of languages and writing from her undergraduate background when she published her thesis entitled, “The Effect of a Garden-Based Nutrition Education Program on the Consumption of Fruits and Vegetables by Hispanic Children” (Californian Journal of Health Promotion, 2012). Megan completed her dietetic internship at the VA of Los Angeles. She then worked for Tri-City Wellness Center in Carlsbad, where she conducted private consultations, nutrition lecture series, and a diabetes management group. She was the RD for Orange County Head Start, Inc. and now works as the pediatric outpatient RD for Heritage Medical Group. Megan is also a certified lactation educator and believes that good nutrition practices should start as early in life as possible. She loves working with expecting parents to help foster the health of their baby from pregnancy, to nursing and on through solids. Megan’s goal is to make healthy food realistic by incorporating the unique lifestyle needs of each individual client and their families.
When she’s not working on meal ideas for clients, you will probably find Megan in the kitchen working on meals for her own family! She absolutely loves to cook and to experiment with a variety of foods and cooking methods so that she can recommend ideas that actually work and taste good! She and her husband enjoy spending time with friends and family, as well as finding new hikes for their beloved, 90 lb. dog Duke! Megan truly follows her own advice by incorporating whole foods, activity and little bits of “me time” into her daily routine…along with the occasional restaurant and dessert splurge of course!
