Dr. Maggie Ney and Alisa Kasmer, best friends for over 30 years, created HelloPeri out of a clear lack of education and resources readily available to those experiencing symptoms of Perimenopause. In a world where many feel isolated and bewildered by hormonal shifts, unsure of how to reclaim their true selves, we strive to be a beacon of support. Despite the challenges, our mission is clear: to deliver the most comprehensive resources and empowering strategies, guiding you on a journey to harmonize your hormones and embrace a life that feels truly incredible.




Dr. Maggie Ney is a hormone expert, naturopathic doctor, a certified practitioner by the Menopause Society (formally known as NAMS) and Director of the Women’s Clinic at the Akasha Center for Integrative Medicine, in Santa Monica, California.She specializes in female hormone balancing and healthy aging. Dr. Maggie is a Phi Beta Kappa graduate from Macalester College and received her medical degree from Bastyr University in Seattle, Washington. For the last 2 decades, she has helped women thrive through the Perimenopausal period with a sense of empowerment by providing the resources, tools, and strategies needed to balance hormones and feel incredible. She is the proud mother of three wonderful daughters, and she is committed to ensuring that they are raised in a world where conversations about hormonal changes are encouraged, comprehended, and embraced.



After spending over a decade in the entertainment business working in casting, production, and development, Alisa shifted gears and found her passion in marketing. She honed her skills, first at a promotional marketing company and later as the Director of Marketing for a global consumer product company. She spent a decade building the company's digital marketing initiative from the ground up, before leaving the corporate life behind for a freelance marketing career, working for clients across several sectors from real estate, entertainment, and wellness.

"It wasn't until my late-30s that I first heard of Perimenopause... and it was through Dr. Maggie. I was shocked! How could I had not heard about this incredibly important phase until I was pushing 40 years old? Menopause gets all the attention... but it's the phase of Perimenopause that is vital to our long term health. Having no understanding of that until so late in life was infuriating! When Dr. Maggie came to me about building a company that would educate women about Perimenopause, I was all-in. It's never too early to learn about our hormones and become better advocates for our health."
