Mary Helen Lee Licensed Menopause Champion, Menopause Doula

Mary is a retired veteran of the Canadian Armed Forces serving more than 24 years. Since retiring from service, Mary worked as a PR practitioner in numerous industries, including healthcare, education, aviation, government, mining, bio innovation, and life sciences.

She has an insatiable appetite for knowledge, especially in health and wellness. In fact, Mary has pursued fitness and wellness as a side hustle for close to 30 years. In this field, she has been in contact with many women experiencing the same issue - perimenopause. The story is always the same, complaints about weight gain, sleeplessness, brain fog, hot flashes, mood swings, and issues with digestion. It came to her that this is an area that sadly lacks information and support, and that more resources are needed to empower women in their journey.

Motivated by her own negative encounter with the misogynistic views and lack of knowledge and empathy for women's health issues, Mary has made it her mission to debunk the misunderstanding and mistruths about women’s health.

Mary haphazardly came across the Menopause Doula certification course and promptly enrolled with Doula Training Centre based in Toronto, Canada. Since completing the program Mary has continued in her learning journey with numerous other qualifications including Ayurveda Principles, Menopause 2.0 with Dr. Stacy Sims, Brain Health for Menopause with Dr. Fiona Lovely, Women’s Health Coaching Certification through Girls Gone Strong, and Yoga for Traumatic Brain Injury through the Love Your Brain Foundation.

Mary is the owner of Emme Elle Coaching and host of All Things Menopausal Podcast, a podcast that features guest experts in the field of Menopause and hormone health - from the physical and mental to the emotional and spiritual.

You can find Mary at www.emmeellecoaching.com and on Instagram at @emme_elle_coaching
