Meredith Paci, is a health coach with a diverse background. Her journey began as a dancer, honing discipline, a love for the body and its strength, power and complexity.  This foundation led to a career in dental hygiene where she began to recognize major gaps in her own health knowledge, the knowledge she saw being shared, and the lack of encompassing support available in the healthcare space. All igniting a thirst for deeper knowledge and to help others on their journey


Meredith's foundation for her career as a Health Coach was established through her Bachelor's Degree, Associates in Health Science, and Dental Hygiene. However, it was her personal experiences that truly cemented her journey.

These have included battling with body dysmorphia and disordered eating, all in perpetual strife to become the smallest version of herself at a major cost to her overall health. She has   battled   hormonal   and  gynecological   issues such as ruptured cysts, ovarian torsions and multiple surgeries that led to premature surgical-induced menopause. It was during this time she began slowly making the link with how the nervous system and overall health is deeply connected. This journey fueled her commitment to empowering women in strength and health. 

 

In 2019, Meredith pursued her dream of becoming a full-time Health Coach leaving her career as a Dental Hygienist 2020. Soon after she joined Team ScoobyHealth, formally Soobyprep. Meredith believes in continued learning to which she has completed numerous courses on subjects covering but not limited to digestive health, thyroid health, adrenal health, fertility and various other female health specific training. Meredith has been personally mentored by Austin Stout, Jason Theobald, Paul Oneid, Dasha Agoulnik RD. Most recently becoming a Certified Midlife Specialist after completing a 6 month mentorship with Kristen Johnson JD, FNTP, BCHN and Maria Claps FDN.

 

Meredith’s competitive spirit, dance discipline, continued education and deep understanding of health struggles have shaped Meredith into the coach and mentor she is today. She is not only here to facilitate transformation but to empower individuals to take control of their health journeys, helping them rewrite their stories and create healthier, happier lives.

 

The future unfolds with limitless possibilities, and Meredith is enthusiastic about leading others on a path of transformation and empowerment. Together, they'll navigate the complexities of health, rewrite their stories, and create healthier, happier lives.
