Our Story 2
Born into an entrepreneurial family in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, Dr. Nancy Markley developed a lifelong interest in healthcare innovation. With a PhD in molecular biology, and a successful professional history of developing and commercializing medical technologies, her career began to point toward something brand new: a healthcare venture of her own, bringing scientifically sound products to market. Using sleep health as its first inspiration, MPowrx officially began in 2005.
The Inventor Respected Calgary dentist and sleep researcher Dr. Leslie Dort (MSc, DDS, Dip ABDSM) is the original developer of the Good Morning Snore Solution mouthpiece. Dr. Dort graduated with a DDS from the University of Western Ontario in 1980, was accredited by the Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine in 2000, completed a Masters degree in Health Research in 2004, and has a faculty appointment with the University of Calgary. For over 15 years, her clinical practice and research have focused on the diagnosis of sleep disorders and oral appliance therapy for sleep-disordered breathing. As part of her clinical practice and research at The University of Calgary, Dr. Dort saw potential for an alternative to the complex, uncomfortable and often expensive snoring solutions on the market. Looking at the mechanics of snoring holistically, she discovered an ingeniously simple but effective anti-snoring strategy — and the central idea of the Good Morning Snore Solution.
