A former magazine editor, she’s worked at The Paris Review and Vanity Fair and served as the editor-in-chief of Marie Claire. While at Marie Claire, she launched a conference for entrepreneurs called The Power Trip. After her mother died of a sudden heart attack in 2016, she became motivated to make an impact on women’s health. Inspired by all the people she’s met who are disrupting industries and building a better world for women, she became an entrepreneur herself in 2020, intending to change the conversation around women’s post-reproductive health.

Are Hormones Really Dangerous?
Hormone replacement therapy used to be the “treatment of choice” for treating menopausal symptoms. But after the first results of the Women’s Health Initiative (WHI) went public in 2002, toilets were flushed around the world, as women panicked and discarded their pills in fear of breast cancer and cardiovascular events. We set the record straight and explain in layman’s terms, what went terribly wrong and why this study was severely flawed. We’ll also talk about non-hormonal alternatives and other ways to treat the symptoms of menopause.
