Diabetes came into my life, and it didn't knock politely. It came in full force, without any warning.
My journey with diabetes began when I was a freshman in college
Yup, I was one of those people who had no idea what the realities of this disease were until I was sitting in the doctor's office being given the lifelong diagnosis.
They sent me off with a few insulin pens and carb ratios and simply told me to use these tools to manage it - but I couldn't help but think that there should be more to living with a chronic disease like this.
It was after graduation that I finally decided to show up for my body. I enrolled in the Institute for Integrative Nutrition (IIN) and learned as much as I could about caring for my body as whole. It was only then that I was able to achieve my lowest A1C - ever - and bring my ulcerative colitis into remission.
Week by week, I have the honor of witnessing other type one diabetics putting themselves first and making massive breakthroughs - whether it's achieving their A1C goal or simply having the disease feel lighter.
I've found purpose within my diagnosis - and I want to
help you do the same.

Integrative Diabetes Health Coach, Certified Personal Trainer, owner of Needles and Spoons Health & Wellness, and creator Keeping It 100. I help overwhelmed people with Type One Diabetes just like you gain more predictability in their blood sugars so they can finally take their life plans off hold.
I was diagnosed with T1D at the age of 19, and to say that I was lost would be an understatement. In the years that followed my diagnosis, through trial, (a lot of) error, and education, I took my own A1C from a 7.1 to a consistent 5.7 and learned what it really takes to achieve predictability in my blood sugars. I also brought my Ulcerative Colitis into remission!
My passion is helping people with T1D go from confused to confident in their blood sugar management, and I have an unshakeable commitment to helping people with T1D do more while worrying less.
