My story

For over a decade, I suffered from Stage IV Endometriosis, an excruciatingly painful menstrual condition that distorted every aspect of my life. Years of PMS pain, five surgeries, infertility, and surgical menopause took an immense toll on my personal and professional goals. With over 15 years in the personal care industry and my passion to make a difference, we started building Glow Botanica. In collaboration with doctors and in-depth research, we are dedicated to tackling hormonal health in a new way, with naturopathic solutions that work.



After dealing with the ramifications of Stage IV Endometriosis for years and going through extreme PMS, infertility, five surgeries, surgical menopause, and severe reactions from IUDs and HRT, she was driven to create natural solutions that support hormonal imbalances and symptoms, no matter the age or phase of life, without the side effects of what the pharma industry currently offers.


Her interest in the hormonal space morphed into much more with Hormone University which is an educational platform with the mission to improve hormone health through accessible knowledge and to advocate for social impact in our communities in an effort to share what she was learning about hormones with other women. 


After two long years of research and very hard work and thanks to gynecologic oncologist and pelvic surgeon Dr. Elizabeth Poynor, lead scientific advisor to Glow Botanica, they managed to create a natural alternative to hormone replacement therapy giving birth to Glow Botanica.
