Naama Barnea-Goraly M.D. was trained in child and adolescent psychiatry and worked as an Instructor and brain researcher at Stanford University. Results of her work were published extensively in leading psychiatric and neuroscience journals and presented at international conferences.
In the course of her work she became interested in gender differences in social cognition, and the significant benefits strong friendships offer, especially for women.
No stranger to the challenges of long-distance (girl)friendships while raising 3 kids and managing a demanding career, she is on a mission to help women keep their girlfriends in their day to day lives no matter how busy or far apart they are.
This mission led her out of the lab and into the real world to create “Telle” (pronounced “tell”), an app designed to be “The next best thing to teleporting your girlfriends whenever you crave unfiltered girltalk”
In this episode, we talk about female friendships, why it is so important for your physical and mental health, why we crave female friendships (spoiler, it’s in your genes), and how Telle will help you keep your girlfriends close.
