Dr. Holly Mehr
Dr. Holly Mehr MD, MSEd, FACOG joins Kindbody as a Reproductive Endocrinologist and Reproductive Surgeon. She graduated Phi Beta Kappa and magna cum laude from Wesleyan University with a degree in psychology and American ethnic studies. She then worked as a public school teacher in the Bronx, NY through Teach For America. She simultaneously earned her Masters Degree in Education at Bank Street School of Education. After making the difficult decision to transition to medicine, she went on to receive a medical degree from Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. Her passion for women’s health and reproductive justice lead to a residency in obstetrics and gynecology at New York University Medical Center. There, she discovered her love for family building, access to care and evidence based medicine which lead her to pursue dual fellowship training in minimally invasive gynecologic surgery and reproductive endocrinology. Her research interests include factors influencing embryo quality and embryo implantation, the effect of metabolism of ovarian function, as well as strategies to improve access to fertility care and patient education. She sees her role as an educator, partner and advocate for her patients along their fertility journey. Outside of work she enjoys spending time outdoors with her family in the California sunshine.
