Shazia is an open, empathetic and wise woman with the most beautiful big smile. She manages a successful career in marketing while using her positive and heartening energy to help others. She mentors young women in business, and supports women at the Endometriosis UK Chertsey & North Surrey support group which she runs.
Shazia suffered almost a decade of challenging symptoms
before being diagnosed with endometriosis.
After supporting a close friend through their diagnosis of endometriosis, Shazia realised the isolation she had felt would be affecting lots of women with the condition. That’s when she knew she needed to start talking and to help others to do the same.
