Wendy gives menopause a new narrative

Wendy’s decades long exploration into women’s healthy ageing led her to set up a global menopause brand delivering online and in person menopause courses and presentations in over 50 countries.  

Like many good things Wendy’s journey started with a curiosity, which was why women in western countries seem to experience worse menopause symptoms than in other countries. Her findings not astounded her. She now brings this information to women and Health Professionals in online courses. Her Menopause Practitioner Course sells out in days.

Uniquely qualified to speak with breadth and depth on the subject of women’s health, Wendy is a former registered nurse and played a large role in founding the Personal Training industry in New Zealand and writing fitness education standards across New Zealand and Australia. After many years lecturing university-level exercise and physiology, she went on to complete her Masters and Thesis in Women’s Healthy Ageing and Behavioural Change.  

Wendy specialises in translating the often complex scientific research, into easy to use information and solutions that women can understand. Her presentations are backed up with comprehensive and in depth scientific research, and unique insights from MyMT‘s own programmes and Symptoms Quiz (which paints a very bleak outlook of the symptoms that over 500,000 women are feeling in midlife).   

An in demand public speaker and presenter, Wendy’s unique take on menopause and her mastery of the subject will challenge everything you thought you knew about menopause…
