Our guest on this episode is Dr. Jerrica Kirkley, co-founder & Chief Medical Officer of Plume. Plume delivers gender-affirming care via telehealth for trans and non-binary individuals, currently operating in 41 states. Plume provides hormone-replacement therapy, such as estrogen and testosterone, as well as letters of support for gender-affirming surgery or changing name or gender markers for its patients. Jerrica and her cofounder, Plume CEO Dr. Matthew Wetschler, raised a $14M series A round of funding last year Craft Ventures.

In this episode, Jerrica and I discussed:

  • Her journey to starting Plume
  • Her experience as a patient and provider of gender-affirming care
  • The current anti-trans political climate and Plume’s role as an advocate for the trans and nonbinary community
