I enjoy taking care of people. I have a lot of practice at it, I’ve been a pharmacist and working in health care for over 20 years!
I realized there’s a void in the health care system when it comes to the care and support of women in their midlife years and especially during the menopause transition, and I set out to fill this gap – I became a Certified Menopause Practitioner through NAMS*
I founded MenopausED to break the menopause taboo, raise awareness and provide education about the menopause transition.
Menopause is not a disease, it is a natural event, and all women will go through menopause!
During perimenopause (the years leading up to menopause-last menstrual period), which may start in late 30s or early 40s, some women experience irregular periods, mood swings, low libido, difficulty sleeping, anxiety, poor concentration, memory issues, aches and pains, and more.
Many women are unprepared for menopause and suffer in silence believing they are the only one and there’s no relief. But that’s not so.
You are not the only one! And there’s help!
Let me help you navigate the change:
I provide one-on-one consultations, in-person and online.
I deliver workshops on several topics related to the menopause transition, disease prevention and healthy aging.
I organize support groups.
Induced menopause happens when women have their ovaries removed by surgery, or their function destroyed by some treatments, like chemotherapeutic and radiation, for certain cancers. In these women the change is abrupt and the sudden drop in estrogen is responsible for many physical, emotional and cognitive changes. Women with induced menopause report life altering experiences due to hormonal changes and their quality of life is greatly reduced.
I help improve quality of life and prevent diseases like osteoporosis, cardiovascular disease and dementia through education, lifestyle changes and counselling.
Because going through menopause at work can be an added challenge and stressful to many women, I provide education to employers and employees through Lunch & Learns and workshops. Think your HR could use some education about menopause? Given them my number!
I throw the best Menopause Party in the country! Want to celebrate your 12 months without a period- being officially in menopause? Have a Menopause Party! Have fun with friends and relatives while learning about your body’s amazing physiology (sex talk included!)
