Kirsten Hennigan

Kirsten has been a nurse for 18 years. She earned her Bachelor of Science in Nutrition from Cornell University in 1999 and went on to earn both her Bachelor and Master of Science in Nursing from the University of Pennsylvania in 2002. Her entire nursing career has been in women’s health, first as a nurse practitioner in general gynecology in Philadelphia. She moved to London in 2006 and worked as a fertility nurse on Harley Street. After a move to Tokyo and a short stint as a nurse practitioner in Manhattan, she landed at RMA of Connecticut in 2014. Kirsten’s favorite part of working at RMA is helping patients gain trust in us and watching their transition from feeling broken to feeling empowered with options. She feels very privileged to play a part in that transition. The most shocking fact about Kirsten is that she doesn’t watch television. She hears all about different shows during morning monitoring but has never seen a single episode!
