In 2022, Kristin Mallon, CNM, MS, RNC-OB and Michele J. Wispelwey, MBA co-founded FemGevity. FemGevity is a telemedicine company focused on menopause and feminine longevity. The company provides concierge care for the average woman seeking personalized healthcare.
Kristin is a board-certified nurse midwife, breast health expert, published author, mother of four, and menopause and feminine longevity expert.
She earned a psychology degree from UC Berkeley and a bachelor’s degree in nursing from Johns Hopkins. She discovered her passion for working with women as a D.O.N.A. trained doula in Maryland and completed her Master’s in Science & Midwifery at NYU.
Previously, Kristin served as the Editor in Chief for the Journal of Elder Abuse & Neglect. She focused on studying biosignals, biophysics, and imaging while working at the Hatch Center for MRI Research at Columbia University. Additionally, she taught nursing courses at both NYU and Monmouth University and wrote for medical textbooks and nursing test prep courses.
Because she loves anthropology and people, travel and exploration are among Kristin’s favorite hobbies. She’s a morning person who enjoys chocolate over vanilla, coffee over tea, dogs over cats, thrillers over horror, Marvel over DC comics, and spicy over mild. She loves waves and snow, and her favorite way to eat eggs is over-easy or Benedict with an ocean view. Her favorite question, other than “Why?” is “How can it be done?”
