On a mission to smash 

the menopause taboo. 

Two million women enter menopause every year in the US. A majority face the transition unprepared, unsupported and under-cared for, just when they need it most.


At Elektra Health, we believe women deserve better. Our platform is rooted in evidence and integrative wellness, and made accessible through technology. 

Our team includes board-certified physicians, best-in-class technologists, and advisors from the nation's leading medical institutions & women's brands. Together, we're building a movement to bring menopause into the 21st century.


Elektra Health was founded in January 2019 by Alessandra Henderson and Jannine Versi. Our origin story lies in a personal health journey that revealed how difficult it is to find reliable, accessible, and evidence-based resources to better understand and manage hormonal health.

As a female-founded, female-first team, we're committed to empowering women with honest, science-backed education, care & community. 

We're excited to partner with you on your next 40 years.
