Dr. Claire Mann

Founder of ChangeXtra

I founded ChangeXtra based on my own lived experience of peri-menopause, struggling to work out what my symptoms were and managing the impact on my life. I spent many years researching the topic and want to share what I learned with others.

ChangeXtra is passionate about 'enabling conversations about the menopause' and 'empowering women through positive change'.

I am also an academic, a researcher and trained in data science. I want to support women and collect big data about peri-menopause to inform research, policy and practice.

I have won several national start-up competitions and built the business and app on a bootstrapped approach with no external investment.

I am passionate about the potential to improve lives through awareness raising and research.
