A native of New Orleans, Meredith moved to Chicago originally to pursue theatre and began studying martial arts in between rehearsals in 2005. She got into it and began competing locally, nationally and internationally, mainly in savate, occasionally in boxing and other arts. Meredith began studying yoga as active recovery between fights and races. She began teaching martial arts in 2009, moved into teaching fitness full time in 2011 and finally began to add yoga certifications to her repertoire. Meredith is registered with Yoga Alliance and loves to teach vinyasa and restorative styles. Writing is something she has always done when inspired and sometimes even to find inspiration.
