Take Shape for Life CEO Named One of Baltimore’s ’50 Women to Watch’

Take Shape for Life CEO Meg Sheetz is one of 50 Women to Watch in the Baltimore community, according to an annual list from The Baltimore Sun. Maryland’s largest daily newspaper whittled down more than 250 nominations to recognize an elite group of “the area’s most intriguing movers and shakers.”

“These are women who are very invested in Baltimore, and there is a lot of good being done out there,” said Sun Editor Anne Tallent. “Whether in advocacy or the arts or nonprofits or science and technology, they are making Baltimore a better place.”

TSFL is the direct sales division of Medifast, where the late Bradley MacDonald, Sheetz’s father and former CEO and Chairman of the Board at Medifast, brought her on board in 2000 as sales administration director. The 37-year-old is now Medifast’s President and COO, in addition to running the company’s TSFL division.

“Meg’s dedication and leadership at Medifast continue to make her an invaluable asset to our company. As the weight-management industry evolves, Meg has led the charge to help expand our position in the overall health and wellness arena,” Chairman and CEO Mike MacDonald shared in a statement. “We congratulate Meg on this noteworthy achievement.”

Her work at Medifast is one of many roles Sheetz plays in the Baltimore community. She is Managing Trustee of the MacDonald Family Foundation and the Take Shape For Life Foundation, which provides grants to support educational programs for disadvantaged students. Sheetz is also a member of the Villanova President’s Leadership Circle, and sits on the Board of Directors for Stevenson University, the Greater Baltimore Committee, and Siloam.
