Rhonda Patrick, previously Rhonda Perciavalle, is an American biochemist and CEO and founder of the website, foundmyfitness.com.[1][2]

Patrick obtained her undergraduate degree in biochemistry from the University of California, San Diego and her earned her PhD from University of Tennessee Health Science Center in 2012.[1][3] Her graduate studies investigated the link between mitochondrial metabolism, apoptosis, and cancer and her dissertation was published in Nature Cell Biology.[1] She was a fellow of the Children’s Hospital Oakland Research Institute.[4][5] She published a paper studying the link between vitamin D and serotonin levels.[4]

Patrick self-published a 20-page report on possible biochemical mechanisms and therapeutic effects of "cold shock modalities," including whole-body cryotherapy.[2] She claims cryotherapy "ramps up fat metabolism," reduces inflammation, and eases chronic pain.[6] She also claims hyperthermic conditioning can improve athletic performance.[7]
