Hi, I'm Josephine Fermanian, MSHS

Founder of Mother of Innovation

-I'm a Polymath 

A Polymath is an individual whose knowledge spans a substantial number of subjects and draws on complex bodies of knowledge to solve specific problems. 

I'm sometimes called a Multipotentialite- an individual with many interests and creative pursuits. 

People like myself, have many paths and we pursue them all. 

I excel at idea generation & solving problems, big and small. 

I am overjoyed to announce, I completed the Master of Science in Health Sciences in the Clinical and Translational Research Program at George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences in May 2024. 

Life experiences led me to innovation.

Necessity truly is the mother of invention. 

Nothing frightens you more and gives you more clarity than a sick baby. You want to do whatever is needed to make your baby/child healthy. 

 2006- After nearly losing my son at the age of two to a virus, I found that every electrolyte drink on the market at the time had a horrible taste and nasty artificial colors and preservatives. So I began to innovate and collaborated with scientists and formula developers to make a tasty baby and kids organic pediatric electrolyte that kids would actually want to drink. I sold the product to stores like Whole Foods and natural foods markets nationwide. 

From the beginning, my strategy was to create each product with the Earth in mind. Eco-friendly was my strategy at a time when most people had no idea what that meant. 

2019- My mom's surgery to remove her cancer inspired me to research optimizing "margin control" in cases of resected gallbladder malignancies. 

My passion is in tumor cryoablation and I have had support for my research of adopting this technology for margin treatment. My cancer research led to letters of recommendation from doctors and surgeons to the Clinical and Translational Research program at George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences. 

Fast forward to 2024, I have innovated 6 consumer products. All of my products solve problems. 

Improvements to the Mother of Innnovation website are under way.  Pardon our dust!


I'm working on innovations in translational research that can help change the way we screen and treat cancers. 

What is innovation? It is the practical implementation of ideas that result in the introduction or an improvement of new goods or services. I call it, "making it better!"

The following is an article in Inventor's Digest. I was featured for my organic household cleaner, and Get a Grip (which keeps towels on the bar).

I began to innovate products in 2004 after finding a gap (a need) in organic baby and household products.

Small but Mighty TMJ Jaw Pain relief

5 years of research went into making this powerful jaw pain relief. I did this because I noticed I was taking too much over the counter meds. This travel size bottle is with me at all times. When pain strikes, I'm ready!

Sometimes when the pain is too severe I roll it over the afflicted area a few times. It's been a life saver of relief from debilitating pain!
