Healthy Living. Simplified.

About Meghan

I’m Meghan! I’m an Aussie living in Chicago with my hubby Andrew and three little girls Willow, Olive and Piper. I’m a mama who loves to educate on living a healthier lifestyle and helping stay at home mamas (like me!) find purpose and their own money again! You can usually find me making my bliss balls or hanging out at my gym taking full advantage of the childcare there (can I get an Amen???)!
