Meaghan Kennedy Townsend is an entrepreneur, philanthropist, speaker, and teacher. For over 20 years she has been a passionate advocate for health and wellness. Her inspiration for fitness stems from her great uncle, John F. Kennedy, who spearheaded the Presidential Council on Fitness which introduced the first physical fitness curriculum into U.S. schools. The connection between her passion and her family’s legacy brought Ms. Kennedy to the Robert F. Kennedy Community Schools in Los Angeles, CA (named after her grandfather) where she taught fitness, movement skills and yoga to at-risk students.
