Meet Vanessa Torre, the midlife coach who’s building a Facebook community called Maximizing Midlife
“The best thing about being 49 is that I’ve finally found this freakish ability to sift through life and let what doesn’t serve me anymore fall through holes like a sieve.”
Hi, I’m Vanessa Torre, I’m 49 and currently living in Arizona but heading to the Bay Area in few months. I’m a writer and midlife coach for women looking to make remarkable changes so they can live creative, fulfilling, and meaningful lives.
By day, I juggle being an entrepreneur and a writer. By night, I devour books like they are my last meal. My tiny apartment has over 400 books! By weekend, I blare music in my house non-stop. Currently obsessed with Shane Smith and the Saints.
I’m in the midst of:
launching a few coaching programs for midlife women and I have new ideas faster than I can create programs for them. When I hit midlife, I struggled to figure out what the next phase of my life would look like. It took me way longer than I wanted to find my feet and so I now put my work into creating coaching programs and resources to make it easier for others. This time it too precious to spend it spinning our wheels.
planning my big move the the Bay Area and I’m so excited I can hardly stand myself. I went on vacation last year to Napa and unexpectedly met the man of my dreams. After lots of time apart and traveling, it’s time to close the gap!
coming out of a period of dealing with some serious body issues. I have been doing major work on this and putting practices in place to change my mindset. It’s been a remarkable journey and I really hate how so many of us struggle with this in midlife.

Finally! Elektra Health delivers the perimenopause and menopause support we deserve
By Gretchen Kalwinski
Elektra Health is revolutionizing what it means to be menopausal. In addition to online menopause care, the women’s health leader provides a digital platform with 1:1 support, telemedicine care, MD-vetted education, and a private community.
When they asked Jumble & Flow if we wanted to try the program, I leapt at the chance. As a perimenopausal woman experiencing mood swings, midsection weight gain, and disrupted sleep, I’ve been eager to tackle these telltale symptoms but not sure where to start.
What I learned on Elektra
Curious about night sweats? Libido? Vaginal dryness? Emotional health? It’s all here in a warm, supportive, easy-to-access package.
I like how Elektra corrals perimenopause issues in one platform, instead of picking it up piecemeal and ad-hoc, as I usually do from different Facebook group comments or various online articles. The info on Elektra’s site translates nicely to a mobile app experience and the modules and events are also available there.
Elektra’s “one-stop shop” mode reminds me how underserved this audience is, and it’s frankly thrilling to see perimenopause — formerly an ignored women’s problem — being given this amount of respect, attention, and space.
