About Me


Hi! I’m Meredith! Please join me as I run through life as a divorced parent, sharing my love for fitness, food, and fashion along the way.

A little bit about me:

I received my BA in Marketing from Hofstra University in the year 2000. Prior to my son being born in 2003, I worked in the promotions industry.

I was a stay-at-home mom for the first seven years of my son’s life. I wouldn’t trade those moments with him for the world!

Following my divorce, I got back into some part time event industry work and then completed my Professional Certificate from The University of Stonybrook in Nutrition for Optimal Health and Sport Performance. It was time to also focus on something I truly have a passion for and enjoy!

I was the Nutrition Representative for my son’s elementary school and remain active in my attendance at the monthly Nutrition meetings within our district.

My positive attitude towards healthy living does not stop here. I have taken my own experiences surrounding my divorce as well as put my personal co-parenting techniques to use in order to help others.

I share my knowledge, thoughts and experiences through my personal blog posts, freelance articles and most recently, published an Ebook, No-Nonsense Guide To Divorce & Co-Parenting. It’s also available on Amazon!

In addition to writing here on the blog, I am a freelance writer and content creator, doing A TON of writing and social media work in the event industry.

How I came up with blog name, The Cookie ChRUNicles:

As most runners know, one often experiences their best and most creative thoughts while running. During one of my long runs early in January 2013, the name The Cookie ChRUNicles just came to me since I used to bake a whole lot of cookies (and sell them too) and I love running. The rest is history.

The Cookie ChRUNicles  is a funny yet informative chronicle of my daily mileage as a divorced mother in New York.

In my life, as you will see, there is never a dull moment, workout or dessert to be had.

Questions? Interested in working with me? Just want to say hello? Need divorce, fashion, running, or makeup advice?  I would love to hear from you!
