Megan Van Zyl received her Masters' degree in Human Development Counseling from Vanderbilt University in 2005. After working with children with autism, people overcoming addictions, and a variety of other emotional, mental, and physical challenges, Megan moved to Cape Town, South Africa where she worked at a high school as a counselor and at an orphanage.

During her time in South Africa, Megan gained clarity to her life-long vision and passion: to fund orphanage work through helping those suffering mentally, emotionally, and physically. Megan Van Zyl moved back to Minnesota, expanded her training to Nutritional Therapy and started The Green Umbrella shortly after completing her nutrition training.

After the death of a dear friend from liver failure and breast cancer, Megan passionately began supporting clients diagnosed with cancer from a holistic perspective: mind, body, and spirit.

"In the past, I had a diagnosis of prostate cancer and had my prostate removed. More recently, I had my PSA tested in March of this year and found out that it had jumped dramatically in 4 months to 134. I received a hormone shot and began working with Megan shortly thereafter. Through the supplements that Megan established, dietary changes, and prayer surrounding emotional and spiritual roots to disease, after 2 months my PSA score dropped to 1.33. Unbelievable." -Randy

"I began working with Meg shortly after a Uterine Cancer diagnoses in an attempt to find additional answers to why it occurred and to gather information for healing options. In doing so, I was provided with nutrition and supplemental support which greatly assisted in my body's healing process and improved mental clarity, digestion and energy levels. In addition, and what I consider the greatest impact of my work with Meg was recognizing the emotional and spiritual roots to disease. Through this discovery I was able properly address the past and spiritually refresh. Without working through this piece I don't believe I would be able to share that in just over two months of healing I have no sign of cancer in my uterus!" - Shanna H
