Our Founder

Sateria is a patient advocate who was diagnosed with fibroids at the age of 26. After receiving the recommendation of a hysterectomy in her 20s, she was prompted to explore other options to manage her fibroid diagnosis. She began a quest for information, which led her to found The Fibroid Foundation.

Preserving her fertility has always been her primary concern. Unfortunately, she soon discovered that there were limited resources and information available to women, who, like her, had severely symptomatic fibroids. Sateria researched and interviewed physicians to find trusted, patient-focused medical professionals, many of whom are now members of The Fibroid Foundation’s Medical Advisory Board.

Holistic professionals provided a vast storehouse of information. Sateria was successfully treated by a naprapath who provided life-sustaining support for anemia. Frustrated by the return of fibroids after four surgeries, she was determined to find answers. Sateria learned to listen to her body, and to allow it to guide her. This awareness led to major nutrition and lifestyle changes.

Along the way, Sateria patented a design for an undergarment for women with heavy flow issues and those in need of incontinence protection.
The Fibroid Foundation has developed a substantial network within the medical community. Sateria is a sought after speaker. She has been featured online, in podcasts, and is published in medical journals. Sateria holds a bachelor’s degree in architecture from Carnegie Mellon University.
