Ann Marie McQueen is a Canadian health and wellness journalist living and working in the Middle East and going through the peri/menopause transition. She launched Hotflash Inc in June 2020 to provide balanced coverage and context about all things (peri)menopause – and inspire and entertain the global perimenoposse along the way – via a weekly newsletter and social media, adding a sponsored weekly podcast the following year.
Ann Marie was a news columnist, blogger and national trends writer working for the Canadian national newspaper chain Sun Media in Ottawa before moving abroad in 2008 to join the team that launched The National newspaper in Abu Dhabi. In addition to overseeing coverage that prompted major reforms of the UAE government’s accessibility and road safety policy, she became the Middle East’s first sustainability columnist and later, Arts&Life and features editor. In 2018 she helped launch and became the editor-in-chief of Livehealthy, the Middle East’s first fitness and wellness platform, featuring an online magazine, podcast, annual festival for men and women and more.
