Menopause hit Patrice like a Sunami without a warning. After experiencing eight years of tumultuous menopausal symptoms and visiting doctors but not getting answers, Patrice, through a girlfriend learnt that she was perimenopausal. This revelation caused her to go on a journey of discovery and to become her own rescue with God’s help.
She began questioning women on the menopausal journey. Her turning point came when she opened up to a group of women her age in a WhatsApp chat. She explained her symptoms and wanted to know if any other woman had similar experiences. The chat blew up all day as women shared their stories. It left Patrice with more unexplained questions.
“Why were older women are not passing on the information to the younger women?”
“Why do most women enter menopause so clueless?”
“Who is responsible for educating women?”
Recognizing the gap, Patrice began studying the topic of menopause as well as interview and conduct informal surveys for answers. In January 2021 after much planning, Patrice & a friend co-hosted Menopause The Dialogue. A web television show that focused on helping women understand menopause. In 2022, she became certified as a Menopause Health Practitioner.
As a Menopause Health Practitioner, Patrice offers guidance, support, information and tools to helps women navigate menopause. She has a private Facebook menopause support group where she mentors women across the globe, called Menopause Survival Care that any women can request to join.
