The pioneer in women’s performance endocrinology

Specializing in helping active and high-performing women reach their performance potential from puberty through menopause.

What is Women’s Performance Endocrinology?

It is the application of physical training, nutrition, and wellness strategies to each woman’s unique endocrine physiology along her lifelong reproductive continuum.

The goal is to optimize her physical performance in sport and high-performance occupations and activities, from reproductive age through menopause.

Your performance in sport and life can be plotted on a spectrum from poor to excellent.

My job is to help you see how your unique hormonal and physiologic patterns are affecting where you are on that spectrum, and to show you how you can evolve your training and nutrition to gain the edge you want.

What problem am I solving?2023-07-13T18:20:18+00:00

Women in professions demanding high-level physical and mental performance are often lost within standard medical practice because the research behind current standards of care in women’s health are performed on a relatively sedentary population. High-performing women find themselves equally lost in the fitness community because most of the research of high-performing athletes is performed on men. To bridge this gap and speak directly to this under-represented population, a new area of women’s health called Women’s Performance Endocrinology was born.
