“We could talk about this all day!” –Missy and Susanne to Pat Duckworth
What is this? It’s menopause, baby.
This is an episode for everyone. Really, everyone. You’re either going to experience perimenopause and menopause, or you’re going to know someone who does.
Pat Duckworth is a midlife expert. She made one of our favorite career pivots ever, from 30-year civil servant to neuro-linguistics student to menopause maven. We got to talk about everything from how to eat and how to drink (or not, as the case may be), to how workplaces have started creating menopause policy.
This episode is filled with information and encouragement. Pat helps women set themselves up for success in their post-menopausal lives. What an inspiration!
