Dr. Kather moved to Olympia, Washington, from southern Oregon, where she worked at Ventana Wellness, PC, a clinic owned by nationally known women's hormone expert Nisha Jackson, Ph.D.

Dr. Kather has served as primary clinical investigator on multiple research studies.  In addition to advancing her clinical skills and education, she is also a published author. She wrote a chapter in the textbook Anti-Aging Therapeutics Volume VIII. The chapter, titled  "Dysmetabolic Syndrome: Where to Begin," addresses the many benefits of nutritional and hormonal balancing, and explains why these practices are essential in truly addressing the underlying cause of this unhealthy condition.

Dr. Kather has spoken to many groups of people about the benefits of metabolic health and the benefits of Univera LifeSciences products. She was also an educational speaker for PCCA's Bio-identical HRT Symposium in September 2005.

She is a member of the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine, Institute for Functional Medicine, and American Academy of Family Physicians, and she is a proud associate of Univera LifeSciences, an international biotech company in Lacey, Washington.

Dr. Kather delivers Metabolic Medical Care with enthusiasm because she know what it's like to struggle with hormonal and nutritional imbalances. Thanks to a healthy diet, consistent exercise, metabolic medicine, and hormone balancing, she now has more energy than she did as a teenager!
