IVme (pronounced eye-vee-me) launched in 2012 as the first IV hydration center in Chicago and the third in the country. Since then we’ve opened three more centers and expanded our menu to include a full line of wellness, beauty and restorative treatments including: IV hydration therapy, bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BioTE), vitamin shots, cosmetic injectables, medical weight loss, and nutritional testing.
All treatments are administered by board-certified physicians, registered nurses or licensed medics.

She has over 10 years of pediatric nursing experience and has worked with cosmetic injectables since 2014. Her passion for helping people look, feel and perform their very best every day led her to take a huge professional leap when she left pediatric nursing to become the co-founder of IVme in Milwaukee’s Historic Third Ward.

Heather’s patients describe her as detail oriented, empathetic and passionate. Heather attributes her success to focus, her competitive drive, patience, confidence and her ability to think abstractly – the same characteristics that make her a competitive golfer with a 2 handicap.
