Culinary & Nutrition


In today's world infinite information is available at your fingertips. What foods are and aren't supportive of our health is confusing, as you can find so much conflicting information. Meridian Integrative Wellness supports you in going through an investigative process, using your own body as the barometer for what is good for you, taking into account recommendations you have from your health care providers, if any.

That means that we don't subscribe to any one diet or way of eating, rather, we help you determine what's right for your unique body and lifestyle, and provide you with one on one health coaching and/ or hands-on learning in our kitchen with our Integrative Nutrition Health Coach to help get you closer to reaching your nutritional goals, whatever they may be. 

Alyson Hendry, M.A., CCC-SLP, Integrative Nutrition Health Coach

Alyson Hendry, M.A., CCC-SLP, is an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach and Speech-Language Pathologist.  She specializes in helping educators, medical providers, and caregivers of individuals with special needs prioritize and find time for much needed self care.  She has an integrative approach that will help you explore the connection between the way you fuel your life (career, relationships, etc.) and the way you fuel your body (food and exercise).  She believes eating quality, whole foods is one of the key cornerstones to healing our bodies and brains.  BUT-- all the kale and broccoli in the world cannot fully counteract a stressful lifestyle. Healthy eating alone cannot counteract toxicities in other areas of our lives.  She hosts various hands-on classes in our classroom and kitchen space to create ongoing community and support amongst those experimenting with changing their eating and lifestyle habits. 

Alyson in a nutshell: Healthy Habits Enthusiast. Nature Lover. Traveler. Caregiver. Forever Student. Recovering Perfectionist.
