About Me

© Nicole Rivera

My purpose in life is to enable people to live longer, healthier lives. I translate this passion into the world through my work as a doctor, author, co-founder of iOWNA (a mobile health app), and now podcaster. In my spare time I enjoy running, tennis, horse riding and of course spending time with my two daughters and fiancé. My wellness work has been influenced by personal experience, as my youngest daughter is a survivor of neuroblastoma, a rare form of cancer. This experience also inspired my first novel ‘Irish Girl’, which will be released in Spring 2021. I grew up in Ireland, but my work as a Consultant Rheumatologist has taken me around the world to major academic centres including Toronto, New York and London. I am currently enjoying undertaking a master’s degree in entrepreneurship at Cambridge University, where I trained as a Homerton Changemaker Ambassador.
Cambridge students get an amazing degree; the Changemakers programme helps them ask more powerful questions about what they are going to really do with that experience, and what success means in the era we live in. Combining a focus on both attributes and practical wisdom, the programme centres on global citizenship, leadership, enterprise, selfhood and sustainable futures, and tools for changemaking. The Homerton Changemakers programme takes the form of regular workshops and intensive residentials, online modules, lectures, mentoring, coaching and a student ambassador scheme.

iOWNA is a digital healthcare platform co-founded by Millicent with the mission to enable people to live longer, healthier lives. The app allows clinicians to share trusted guidance in a patient friendly format to help improve clinical outcomes so people can live longer, healthier lives. iOWNA was inspired by her own experience as a mother of a very ill child as she discovered the importance of having the right information at the right time, which helped her daughter survive.
