If you’re a talk show fan, you may recognize me from my appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

If you’re a sports fan, you may recognize me from the collegiate sports scene. I was an All-American goalkeeper for the LSU Women’s Soccer team and the first female to ever tryout for an SEC, Division I Men’s Football team. (Geaux Tigers!) I was also crowned LSU’s 2011 Homecoming Queen. (Who says you can’t balance beauty and brawn?)

While I was in school, I created a fun YouTube series called “Meaux Vs.” and took on some of LSU’s top athletes in a handful of friendly competitions. You can watch the entire “Meaux Vs.” series HERE, but first watch me challenge the Honey Badger.

While my athletic endeavors were thrilling, my personal journey was quite the opposite. My young life was riddled with adversity and unexpected tragedy. I struggled with a debilitating eating disorder, suffered through the suicide of my father, and survived a horrific car accident—all in a few years time.

It is my heart to inspire hope in those who feel hopeless, encourage strength in those who feel bound by life’s circumstances, and empower this generation to live life with integrity, character, and passion!

I currently live in Atlanta and spend my days traveling throughout the country—as well as internationally—speaking to churches, businesses, schools, and communities. I also do some freelance broadcast and spokesmanship work for different organizations.

I really love to love on people, too. I’ve served over 2,200 total hours for various ministries, mission organizations, and volunteer programs. My service has stretched from the homeless streets of Atlanta to the remote bush villages of Uganda to the impoverished slums of Costa Rica. I’m passionate about impacting communities, connecting with individuals, and sharing hope and light in a darkened world.
