Gwen Harris

Our company is led by Gwen Harris. Raised in Zambia, Africa until she was 15, Gwen's travels have spanned the globe. She understands cultural diversity and the power of making a global impact. Her professional and personal interests are equally as diverse. 

Gwen founded Harris Holiday Cruises to host the special interest cruises for this global sisterhood within her Menopause Support Group. "Forming the group out of my own personal menopause despair in 2013, I never imagined that my influence within this space would span the globe to over 120 countries. Managing the explosive growth of the group has not been easy, but then, nothing in life that has lasting value is easy. I realized that the woes of menopause are a global issue, so my passion became what it is today."

Professionally, Gwen is a health and wellness coach and entrepreneur. She practices what she preaches and believes it is possible to age backwards when you are kind to your body. Her personal interests include interior design, aggressive outdoor activities (she loves living in the high desert of Central Oregon where there's year round opportunities to play outdoors), playing classical piano, gourmet cooking, hospitality and entertaining. She's the mother of 3, Gigi to 8 beautiful grandchildren, wife to her loving and supportive husband and a Christ follower. 

Gwen is a charismatic and determined visionary. With the help of her team, Harris Holiday Cruises will be chartering entire ships with members from her global sisterhood. To have the ability to influence thousands of lives is something Gwen takes very seriously. She believes life is all about the legacy that you leave behind. 

Gwen is overwhelmed at the outpouring of support by her council of experts. "They have stepped up and generously given of their time and expertise in this endeavor. Without them, I could not do this. My heart is forever grateful to these outstanding women that I'm so blessed to call my friends."
