Jenneh Bockari-Rishe has been a Registered Nurse for 11 years, working in many different specialty areas such as trauma, kidney transplant, oncology, and leukemia/bone marrow transplant. It took over 4 years, but Jenneh's medical background gave her the knowledge and skills to navigate how to finally get good care after she was diagnosed with endometriosis. With her love for healthcare, education, and teaching, she felt inspired to use her abilities to help other women understand the disease better. One way she does this is by contributing endometriosis and working as a medical reviewer for Healthline.
Jenneh is originally from New Jersey, but has lived in in Los Angeles for the last 8 years. In her free time, she loves running, writing, and spending time with her incredibly supportive husband, family, and friends. When asked why she felt so passionately about starting the The Endometriosis Coalition with Natalie, she says "endometriosis is criminally under researched and horribly misunderstood, and I want to be a part of changing that, sooner rather than later."
