About Lissa Rankin

Dr. Lissa Rankin refuses to be put in any one box, and in that simple fact, she attracts readers, patients, healers, coaching clients, writers, artists, collectors, and admirers around the world. By refusing to stand on a pedestal, wear a white coat, and portray herself as anything more than a regular woman who just happens to have twelve years of education and a decade of experience as a doctor under her belt, she differentiates herself from many others who are trying to be “experts” without being transparent about who they really are and revealing their true humanity. Her message and her example are redefining what it means to be healthy, vibrant, authentic, and alive as a woman in the 21st century.

Lissa is a Pink Medicine Woman Coach who practiced as an OB/GYN physician for ten years, a public speaker and teacher, author of the books What’s Up Down There? Questions You’d Only Ask Your Gynecologist If She Was Your Best Friend, and Encaustic Art: The Complete Guide To Creating Fine Art With Wax, founder of the online community OwningPink.com, a professional artist, a workshop leader, and a Mom. Lissa started a simple blog in 2009 to document her personal quest to integrate all the fragmented facets of her being that made her whole. OwningPink.com immediately caught fire with readers from all walks of life who were seeking their authentic selves and saw in Lissa a transparent, growing soul and kindred spirit. OwningPink.com has grown strongly and steadily in its first two years and now hosts more than 30 authors, coaches, and healers, spawning a community of over 70,000 social media followers and over 500,000 readers.

“I once thought I had to put myself in a box and choose who to be. But I now accept that, while I am so many things, no single identity defines me. I am more than what I do. We all struggle with who we really are and whether our lives reflect our truest selves. I now strive to be authentic, in all aspects of my life, whether I’m healing or painting or writing or teaching, and I encourage others to do the same.” ~ Lissa Rankin
