The woman who started it all

Dr. Marylin K. Volker

Dr. Marilyn K. Volker - the child of a Lutheran minister and later the wife of a Lutheran minister - always wanted to help people in need. While still a minister's wife, she began a career as a surrogate partner.  Often called "Miami's Dr. Ruth," Dr. Volker eventually became a highly regarded sexologist, surrogate partner supervisor, sex therapy instructor, intimacy consultant to the U.S. military, speaker and host of television and radio shows. She remains an enthusiastic advocate for sexual and human rights.
