Naama Barnea-Goraly

Founder and MD

Naama Barnea-Goraly M.D. received her medical degree from the Hebrew University and Hadassah Medical School in Jerusalem, Israel, and her clinical training in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and a post-doctoral neuroimaging research fellowship at Stanford University. She then went on to work as an Instructor and brain researcher at Stanford. Her research on brain structure in disorders affecting social cognition was published extensively in leading psychiatric and neuroscience journals and presented in international conferences. 

In her work, she became interested in gender equality and the importance of supportive authentic communities, especially for girls and women. This led her out of the lab and into the real world to found “Girltelligence,” a girl empowerment app for teen girls and young women to find a supportive community and resources to support their mental health and reach their full potential.
