Our Story

Unsatisfied with the lack of awareness and knowledge among medical professionals and frustrated by the large amount of unreliable information she found online, she decided to start PERLA Health with the goal to help affected women live happier and healthier lives.

Our Founder

Kathrin Folkendt has spent most of her career in tech.

She is excited about digital health and the opportunity to significantly improve patient experience and outcomes, while lowering costs for patients, employers and insurers.
