Treehouse predominately focuses on building technology related to women’s and family health. We operate in the space of health- tech, digital health, fem-tech, and parent-tech.

Treehouse allows maternal and family allied health providers from pre-conception to early childhood to follow their clients throughout the care journey. Treehouse software allows providers to grow their business, build their network, and connect with clients on an all-in-one secure platform.

Tell us about yourself?

As a medical student turned entrepreneur, I was committed to creating and building a solution that could help support individuals from fertility all the way into early childhood. I had first-hand experience with an exceptional lactation consultant who supported me during my postpartum period, however, I felt disconnected between our meetings. Treehouse’s solution focuses on fixing those fractures for providers who support clients like me, and further gives those clients a place to stay connected and get better care.

If you could go back in time a year or two, what piece of advice would you give yourself?
