The Story So Far

I started going through the Menopause about 5 years ago and found myself feeling lost and just not myself. I floundered around for 5 years bouncing back and forward from the GP with no answers (but lots of tablets!). Fed up and fobbed off. What saved me was 2 key things – 1) my friends who had been where I was and knew how I felt and could offer advice and 2) tracking my symptoms and the impacts of the various things I tried like medication and changes to exercise and diet.

I don’t want this to be how my friends or daughters have to face their menopause. I want them to have the best of what helped me - a community to share the experience with, mentors to advise them and smart technology to help them understand what is happening to them and the best ways to deal with it. Change is inevitable but can be positive in many ways.

Tablets shouldn't be the solution to everything!

So ChangeXtra was born – from the blood, sweat and tears (literally!) of my own experience and a real desire to make the world better for women.
Let’s talk Menopause, and empower women through positive change!

In 2020 after being made redundant during the pandemic, I returned to University to retrain in Data Science. It was here that I took the opportunity to enter the Ingenuity business planning programe and competition, where I worked on the ChangeXtra business plan with support from Ingeniuity.

My business proposal was first shortlisted to the regional finals, and then the National finals in May 2021. At the awards evening in May 2021, ChangeXtra swept the board.

In July 2021, I also won first prize in the NTU Enterprise competition.

Then in September 2021, I was shortlisted to the final of the Engineers in Business Champion of Champion Awards, with the final taking place in October 2021.

The pitch I entered can be seen online here, and you can even vote for me:
