Episode 5 Cindy Moy: supporting women through perimenopause with mySysters

Cindy Moy is the founder and CEO of mySysters, a social and self-care mobile platform to help women manage the symptoms that can occur from the hormonal fluctuations during perimenopause. The app lets women track their symptoms, print a chart of what they’ve tracked, and share advice with other women in discussion forums.

Cindy is a single mom of two daughters. She came up with the idea for a perimenopause app after seeing the period trackers popular among women in their teens and twenties and wondering, “Where’s mine?”. A lawyer and writer by trade, she launched a tech startup to develop the app. She then moved the business from Minneapolis, Minnesota to Newcastle upon Tyne, UK and now ‘commutes’ between countries.

We recorded the episode at a coffee shop, so there is some background noise in this episode (just close your eyes and imagine you are there with us drinking a latte).

*Since recording the interview, Cindy has informed me that myGauge, an app designed for partners of women using mySysters, is now available from the app store (link below).
