Lyn Hogrefe, MS Ed, is the founder and executive director of the Happy Hormone Cottage, which she started 9 years ago in the heart of Centerville, as a safe place for women to share their stories, be heard and validated. Through her own journey with an emergency radical hysterectomy at the age of 49, she recognized the huge gap between what our doctors and standard of care were telling us about hormone balance, and the truth about the needs of our body and the important tasks of our hormones. With the help of her compounding pharmacist husband, she fought her way back to wellness, and opened her Happy Hormone Cottage to educate women on their options for natural hormone balance, prevention of disease and wellness throughout life.
Today, Lyn has 3 Happy Hormone Cottages and a new Integrative Hormone Center and Pharmacy in the Centerville, Ohio; as well as a consulting business-HHC Consulting-to teach doctors across the country how to become proficient in optimal hormone balance. The 2nd edition of her book, “Own Your Journey…to Natural Hormone Balance” was published in 2016, solidifying her as a Warrior for Women’s Wellness. In 2016, she also co-wrote the award winning book, “Success Powered by Relationships” with 20 other area women. During the summer of 2015, Lyn began her “Lyn Hogrefe Women’s Health Initiatives Foundation,” supporting New Hope for Cancer, where 100% of monies raised goes directly to New Hope for Cancer.
In 2017, Lyn partnered with 3 other area female entrepreneurs passionate about building awareness and creating change in their community. Collective Wellness Partners (www.
Lyn’s passion is women helping women understand the truth about their bodies, and to learn the most natural options for aging gracefully and healthfully, with a focus on preventing disease.

January 1, 2014 Lyn launched her new “Women’s Health Initiatives Foundation” to raise money for not only building awareness of natural hormone balance and its importance in women’s wellness, but to also raise money for Dr Mark Rosenberg and his New Hope for Cancer project. New Hope for Cancer is raising money to get a new drug Dr Rosenberg has developed into clinical trials that will allow cancer patients to live with their cancer as a chronic, manageable disease instead of having to endure the devastating effects of chemo. This is a more holistic way to treat cancer and allows for more innovative and integrative holistic health options.

Beginning January 2014, Lyn’s HHC began partnering with Suzanne Somers and her Forever Health referral program.
In April of 2014, Lyn and her husband Jeff, R Ph and FAARM, brought the innovative and life-changing Thyroflex thyroid machine to their Kettering campus. This revolutionary Thyroflex machine, developed by well renowned internist, Dr Daryl Turner, is an FDA-approved, non-invasive test that measures the function of the thyroid. Women who have not felt well for years, but have been told by their doctors that their thyroid is fine, can now finally be treated.
Lyn’s mission is to encourage ALL women to become aware of the importance of maintaining their hormone health. Her mantra is, “Hormones are to women what water is to plants.” She uses this as the motivation for women everywhere to become educated, empowered and committed to their BEST health naturally.”
