Addressing the Fears and Misconceptions Around Menopause: Jeanne Andrus
Jeanne Andrus is a menopause and life coach who started helping women navigate their menopause journeys after her own journey to health and happiness.
She is also a certified Personal Trainer, Health Coach, and Behavioral Change Specialist through the American Council on Exercise, as well as the author of 5 books on menopause, including “I Just Want to Be ME Again!” (now in its 2nd edition) and “Where is My Wife and What Have You Done with Her? A Spouse’s Guide to Her Menopause”.
Jeanne is on a mission to help remove the taboo of menopause, that the idea of women who are past menopause are invisible, or over the hill, or all washed up. She often shares the story of how this negative perception of postmenopause is inculcated in us from an early age, and why this is such a wrong perception of the amazing opportunity which menopause opens up for women.

Jeanne Andrus spent the first 48 years of her life doing everything the “right way.” You know, good grades, college, marriage, career, baby… all the things.
Then at age 48, perimenopause clobbered her. But her symptoms weren’t changing periods and hot flashes. Depression, anger, and low libido took her out of the life she’d built for herself.
Determined not to let this change destroy her, she began a 4-year journey to health, happiness, and a new purpose in life. She lost 80 pounds, moved from New England to New Orleans, and quit her corporate job to help other women struggling with menopause symptoms and changes ditch their symptoms and delight in life again.
Wanting to understand how and why menopause affects women so completely, Jeanne spends hours down the rabbit holes of the internet, chasing wisps of information about the physical, emotional, mental, and social aspects of “The Change.”
She blends her own experience, the results of her research, and her training in traditional exercise and nutrition with a myriad of holistic approaches including Reiki energy healing and yogic breathwork to create a unique coaching experience she calls Menopause Mastery Coaching.
In addition to her coaching, Jeanne is the author of five international best sellers on menopause, including “I Just want to Be ME Again!” (now in its second edition) and her book aimed towards men trying to understand how menopause is affecting someone they love – “Where is My Wife and What Have You Done with Her?”
When not speaking, writing, and coaching about menopause, she loves hanging out in New Orleans, listening to live music or riding in Mardi Gras parades, or traveling the US with her husband and dog.
