Pvolve, the leader in evidence-based functional fitness for women, announced today that it has appointed Dr. Shannon M. DeVore to its Clinical Advisory Board as MD, Reproductive Endocrinologist. Dr. DeVore is Clinical Assistant Professor, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, at New York University’s Grossman School of Medicine.

Pvolve’s Clinical Advisory Board, composed of distinguished medical doctors and healthcare and fitness experts, works with the Pvolve team to collaborate on workouts, programs tailored to specific need-states such as pelvic floor health, managing symptoms related to the menstrual cycle and new products. Pvolve’s fitness offering is available in-studio, through live and on-demand virtual classes and via a growing franchised studio footprint. The programs can be accessed directly from Pvolve and through employer benefit and corporate partnerships.

“We are proud to announce Dr. Shannon DeVore’s appointment to our Clinical Advisory Board,” said Julie Cartwright, president of Pvolve. “The Board’s members are an integral part of ensuring that the Pvolve method is firmly rooted in science, and Dr. DeVore’s experience as a researcher and practitioner in fertility and related obstetric and gynecological issues underscores our commitment to deepening our impact on women’s fitness and health throughout their lives.”

In order to support women throughout their lifetime, Pvolve has put an emphasis on developing programs that support fitness during the progress of pregnancy from beginning to end, including the pre-conception, prenatal and postpartum periods. These programs, with the approval of Pvolve’s Clinical Advisory Board, are designed to address women’s fitness needs as their bodies move through each stage of pregnancy.

“I’m pleased to join Pvolve’s Clinical Advisory Board. During my career, I’ve been focused on improving women’s health prior to and during pregnancy; physical health is a significant element of reproductive health. Pvolve takes a scientific approach to movement which will help women in their journeys to parenthood, and I look forward to advising the team as it continues to develop its programs,” said Dr. DeVore.

Dr. DeVore joined the renowned NYU Fertility Center team in 2019 following advanced training in reproductive endocrinology and infertility as a fellow in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility at NYU Langone Medical Center. She completed her residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology at New York Presbyterian-Columbia University Medical Center. She is board-certified in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility and in Obstetrics and Gynecology.

Dr. DeVore earned her M.D. from the University of California, Irvine School of Medicine, where she was elected to the Alpha Omega Alpha Medical Honor Society, and her A.B. summa cum laude from Princeton University.

Dr. DeVore’s clinical articles have been published in the Journal of Assisted Reproduction and Genetics and Fertility and Sterility. She has been the recipient of medical student teaching awards, and is actively involved in research on egg freezing and other fertility and reproductive health issues.

Among Dr. DeVore’s areas of special interest are female infertility, male infertility, egg freezing, recurrent miscarriage, polycystic ovary syndrome, in vitro fertilization, preimplantation genetic testing, family-building for LGBTQ patients, fertility preservation for cancer patients, ovulation induction, artificial insemination and oocyte donation.

A native of San Diego, Dr. DeVore lives with her husband and two children in New York State, and is currently expecting her third child.
