Founder & CEO
Allison L. Watkins founded Watkins-Conti Products, Inc. in 2015 after experiencing debilitating stress urinary incontinence (SUI) following the birth of her second child. Frustrated by limited solutions, she designed a medical device she hoped would help her and the nearly 3 in 4 women worldwide who suffer from SUI. She engineered, patented, and manufactured Yōni.Fit* as a convenient, comfortable option to address the symptoms of stress urinary incontinence. Yōni.Fit is pending FDA approval following completion of a national clinical trial by Urogynecologists at Stanford, NYU, and Jefferson Health.
Allison has raised funds from private investors to create quality management systems, secure contract manufacturing, conduct clinical trials, and expand her executive team and expert advisers.
An engaging speaker, Allison challenges social taboos around women’s health and well-being. She is passionate about developing treatments that benefit women, and funding for women-led healthcare companies. Allison was recognized in Business Times’ Top 20 under 40, Disrupt magazine’s Top Ten Influential Women, and the Journal Record’s Achievers Under 40.
