Cassie has built a following of loyal fans by helping people with the root causes of their health issues—especially ones that healthcare practitioners often overlook.

Emily Meade | RD, LD
Emily is a Registered, Licensed Dietitian with a passion for real food and maintaining a balanced lifestyle. She knows that having balance in her life is multifaceted, including: good nutrition, regular physical activity, getting enough sleep at night, managing stress, and investing into meaningful relationships with family and friends. Coming from her traditional schooling in nutrition and working in healthcare, Emily knew there was so much more to helping people navigate through food and nutrition than dieting. As Emily adapted the Healthy Simple Life philosophies and the PFC way of eating into her own life, the more frustrated she became with conventional nutrition. Emily personally experienced how the power of real food and lifestyle modifications transformed her own life from the inside out, which makes her even more excited to help her clients reach their goals. Emily’s joy and excitement for life is evident and contagious. At Healthy Simple Life, it is Emily’s deepest desire to guide you through an individualized approach to healing your bodies from within, in order to live the most vibrant life you can!

Taylor Moree | RD, LD
Taylor is one of our enthusiastic coaches, and completed her degree in dietetics from the University of Houston. Taylor’s unconventional dietetic approach is rooted in her own health struggle. In her early twenties, she found herself trying (and failing!) to follow the “move more, eat less” approach that so many of us have tried over and over again to no avail. Taylor felt defeated and like something was wrong with her as her health was suffering from following those low fat and low calorie diets. Only after getting beneath the surface and discovering the missing pieces to her puzzle (undiagnosed food sensitivities and a candida overgrowth) was she able to finally get those puzzle pieces back into place and step into her healthiest, fittest self. That’s when Taylor realized that energy levels, health and weight are about so much more than just food and exercise! Ever since, it’s been her passion to help people like you to identify and address all of your missing puzzle pieces so that you can overcome your history of dieting and health struggles, too!
Taylor’s main goal as your coach is to be your guide in overcoming your own barriers to get to your healthiest, fittest, most energetic self. Taylor’s favorite aspect of her role in your journey is being an investigator. Taylor’s authentic and enthusiastic approach coupled with a focus on sustainability will help you build lifestyle transitions and experience long-term results! Taylor wants you to know that you don’t have to go through this journey alone, she has been in your shoes and is ready to help you get to your best self!
- Taylor has lived in four states in the last five years (she loves a new adventure)
- Taylor was a massage therapist for 7 years before pursuing nutrition!

Customer Support Manager
For all of your questions, Monica is your go-to gal! With a BS in Communications-Public Relations, she is the best connector to help you get what you need. Her enthusiasm and passion are infectious. That’s what makes her the perfect first point of contact here at Dietitian Cassie.
Monica understands the health and weight loss struggle. Growing up, she was an obese child. She struggled to find her healthy body throughout adolescence as she bounced from one diet to the next. Monica’s big a-ha moment happened once she became a parent. She wanted the best for her baby, but realized she really didn’t know how to take care of her own body in a healthy way… and that made her nervous about the example she’d be setting up for her child. After diligent research, she was relieved when she finally found a healthy and sustainable way to eat that supports her body and her family.
- Monica is an avid weight-lifter and spin instructor
- She's also a busy mom to three little boys!
