89: Menopause Lessons from the Mountains with Jeannette McGill (Episode 89)

In this Episode

Women often stop going to the high mountains when they reach menopause. The reasons why–unpredictable physical symptoms, anxiety, and fear to name a few–will resonate with all of us, whether or not we ever step foot above sea level. This week’s guest, high altitude mountaineer Jeannette McGill is currently navigating the menopause transition herself and is determined to help women manage their menopausal symptoms and continue their jouney of exploration in the outdoors and beyond.

Jeannette is the first South African woman to summit Manaslu and the first ever South African to climb Dhaulagiri – two of the 14 8,000-meter (26,000 feet) mountains in the world. She is passionate about supporting others to achieve their outdoor goals through her mountain mentoring and leads bespoke adventures in the Australian Alps and Nepal. Her portfolio career also includes industrial technology management, and she has a PhD from the Colorado School of Mines. You can learn more about her and her work as a mentor and guide at https://www.mcgillsmountains.com/
