Meeks was an LSU Cheerleader as an undergraduate and three-time team captain. She cheered for a football National Championship team (2007) and NCAA men’s and women’s basketball Final Four teams. An athlete herself, Jamie also competed for LSU as a member of LSU Cheerleading’s nationals team, which faces off against the most elite collegiate cheerleading teams in the nation every year at UCA College Nationals in Orlando, Florida.

After completing her education, Meeks became the Director of Sports Nutrition for LSU Athletics and was the first full-time dietitian on staff in the program’s history. At LSU, she developed the sports nutrition program, which functions both to attend to the athletes’ dietary needs as well as educate them on proper nutrition and fueling strategies for optimal performance. Meeks played a key role in establishing the Athletic Fueling Stations and the initial planning for a multi-million dollar Tiger Athletic Nutrition Center. Aside from building the program, she also created the Undergraduate Sports Nutrition Internship, which for the first time gave LSU’s dietetic undergraduates an opportunity to gain hands-on nutrition experience working with elite athletes.  

In 2015, Meeks assumed the role of Director of Sports Nutrition for the Saints and Pelicans. She now helps professional athletes maintain their nutrition and implement optimal strategies for fueling, hydrating, and supplementing their diets so that they’re achieving peak performance both in their training and on the field. She provides medical nutritional therapy and works closely with the athletic trainers, strength coaches, and team doctors in counseling the team and individual players.

Meeks is a member of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, Louisiana Dietetic Association, Collegiate and Professional Sports Dietitians Association, and the Sports Cardiovascular and Wellness Nutrition dietetic practice group.
