I am a healthy, active 30-something year old woman diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes in 1995, and still complication-free! I am a passionate lover  of the outdoors. I have hiked and backpacked all over the United States, and am an avid alpine skier, kayaker, and cyclist. I am training for my  second half marathon, but my greatest adventure is motherhood. I am a mother to two very sweet and active children!

My diabetes philosophy is one of both confidence, and perhaps a little defiance. While my Type 1 Diabetes guides my choices and my lifestyle, I  refuse to let it completely control my life. I choose a healthy, active life and I work extremely hard to find ways that I can maintain healthy blood  glucose levels while participating in the same activities as my non-diabetic friends and family. It is an ongoing learning process for sure! I refuse  to let my diabetes limit me, and I am passionate about sharing the knowledge I have gained over the years with other diabetics.
