Meghan Erkkinen has been part of the PMS Comfort content team since 2013. She was born and raised in Tacoma, among the forests and mountains of Washington state. After graduating from the University of Washington in 2007, Meghan wrote about health, education, and politics for local newspapers. She later joined the Teach for America Corps and moved to Louisiana.
When, after several years of teaching, work and personal stress began to threaten her wellbeing, Meghan decided it was time to re-examine her priorities. She developed a love of fruit smoothies, Greek yogurt, and salad (and, okay, the occasional chocolate chip cookie) and began practicing mindfulness techniques to reduce her stress and improve her life quality. Through mindful practices and meditation, Meghan has been able to reduce stress and work more effectively. So often, when life gets busy, we forget to check in on our emotional and physical selves, ignoring stress or pain. Taking the time to check in with herself has helped Meghan improve her awareness of her mind and body.
In 2013, Meghan returned to a career in writing; this time for the Internet. She now writes about her some of her biggest passions. Meghan writes about health and wellness and has a particular interest in women’s health, an area she feels is often misunderstood or neglected. Although women have more access to health information than ever, still many are confused or ashamed of their bodies. Through health writing and PMS Comfort, Meghan hopes to empower women with knowledge about their mental and physical health.
In addition to health writing, Meghan also writes about travel—both in North America and abroad. She is currently dreaming of trips to Iceland and India. Meghan lives in Minneapolis with her boyfriend and their two cats. She spends her free time doing yoga and attempting new vegetarian recipes. And she travels whenever she gets the chance.
