Integrating experience as a Nurse Practitioner & Researcher to design breakthrough Biome & Breastfeeding innovations.
My PhD concentration was in psychoneuroimmunology, the study of how the brain, immune system, and nervous system talk to each other. My passionate advisor got me fascinated by breast milk as the most preventative, dynamic, biological substance to give babies the healthiest start in life. My dissertation was focused on understanding the relationship between maternal inflammatory factors, breast milk immune molecules [cytokines], and how they affect the preterm infant gut microbiome and health outcomes until 4 years of age. Realizing how crucial prolonging breastfeeding is, I set out to understand what pain points mothers had. This work led me to invent The Natural Nipple: a patented infant feeding solution designed to solve a primary barrier to breastfeeding so care-givers can introduce a bottle without consequential latching problems or fatal complications from unnatural flow rate reducing hospitals' length of stay cost while improving health outcomes for future generations.
My hope is to combine my experience as a primary care Nurse Practitioner, Psychoneuroimmunology research, and founder to revolutionize adult gut health. In doing so I aim to help clients understand their signature microbiome and how to harness it to optimize their neurological, immune, and endocrine systems to increase energy and improve lifelong health!
