“Education is one of the most important things you can acquire — the more that you know, the better decisions you can make. But it matters where that information comes from. It’s important to know where you can go for quality education about your reproductive and sexual health.”  

Dr. Brandye works as a women’s health specialist to provide space for women to tell their stories, provide accurate information about their health concerns, and be an advocate for those under her care.

Passion and Motivation

In addition to her clinical work, Dr. Brandye wrote the Amazon bestselling book, My O My! A Committed Woman’s Guide to Getting the Great Sex She Deserves, which sparked her work as a sex and pleasure coach for women.

“I want to dispel the miseducation surrounding women’s reproductive and sexual health. Even with all of the advances in women’s health, still there is a shyness about having open and honest conversations about what happens to our bodies. My aim is to create spaces to have real conversations about taboo topics, like sex and pleasure, and to remove the stigma.”
