Hi, I’m Adriana

I’m a food, health, and wellness writer and editor, a cis-gender woman somewhere in the forest of perimenopause. I’m also a certified health coach and menopause instructor, so… I’m not sure exactly where I am, but I’ve got a map.

What’s happening here?

A weekly essay related to the menopause transition—always in context, because we don’t ‘pause in a vacuum. Or relating to transitions in general. Or about what’s happening in the world.

Vetted health news and advice from trustworthy sources. No miracles.

Microactivism opportunities, because we’re all about change.

Where you come in.
