Lyn Hogrefe is on a mission to educate women. Her personal journey to find balance was met with many challenges – she knew those experiences could help other women on their journey to wellness. In 2009 she opened the Happy Hormone Cottage, an education and resource center, which teaches women how to achieve optimal health through natural hormone therapy. Clearly there was a need for this service as her little cottage has expanded into multiple locations serving three states and growing. She is a warrior for women’s wellness that is fearless when it comes to telling the truth. Lyn says of her foundation, “I want The Lyn Hogrefe Women’s Health Initiatives Foundation to be my legacy of women helping women. I have access to cutting edge information that is valuable and useful in helping to prevent disease in women. One of my biggest interests is using hormone balance to help prevent breast cancer. I’m working with our urine strip testing scientists to develop a way to prevent certain forms of breast cancer. Raising money to further this cause is crucial” Lyn is an award-winning educator, Top 25 Women to Watch, Athena Award Finalist, Entrepreneur, Blogger and Author. Her first book, “Own Your Journey to Optimal Hormone Balance” was released in May of 2014. She is currently working on her second edition, to be released in 2015. She hopes women will be inspired by her passion to improve their quality of life, naturally and benefit from her efforts to fund innovative research and therapies.
