Menopause Champion


I’ve worked in the Faculty of Science Technical Services Team for over a year now.

Why I became a Menopause Champion

Menopause matters are rightly being given more time, energy and understanding at the University and more widely in the UK. The impact perimenopause and menopause can have is significant, and ensuring people can access support is really important.

In my experience, it can be very powerful to connect people so they can listen, learn and share experiences, and work through a concern. This is why I wanted to be part of menopause support at the University.

I was determined to 'keep calm and carry on' when the idea of menopause was put to me and was surprised by the impact some symptoms had on me. The range of symptoms can be intermittent and varied, leading many people to feel dismissed when they voice them. I'm happy to be contacted for a chat or for menopause information or resources, whether for yourself or for someone you think it may be useful for.
