I came out for College and fell in love with a boy and the mountains. The rest is history.
I am a Registered Nurse who loves to work in diabetes management and care. I am passionate about diabetes care, both type 1 and type 2. I have a husband and son who are diabetic, and I understand it. I love to teach about the disease and encourage people that they can live full, healthy lives while being diabetic. A little back story, my husband was diagnosed at 48 with Type 1 diabetes. His education was nonexistent, and we had no idea what we were supposed to do and how to manage this new situation we found ourselves in. A few months later, our then 11-year-old son was diagnosed with Type 1. We spent two days at Primary Children's Hospital being taught about this new life we were entering into and how all of this works and affects every aspect of our life. It was unbelievable how much we did not know about a disease my husband had been trying to manage for the past few months. This was a rude awakening for my husband and for me. I then spent every minute I had free studying, listening to podcasts, researching pumps and CGMs, and getting familiar with diabetes and how it works and how to live normally with it, and how to help people who have it live normal healthy lives. I decided then that I needed to go back to school and become a Registered Nurse and Diabetes Educator, and now here I am, working at DETS and helping people with diabetes every day. This is something I am truly passionate about.
My favorite color is Blue, any shade. I love Chick-fil-a sandwiches and fries. (No, I am not a teenager, but the gut knows what it wants, and Chick-fi-a is it!). Thailand is my all-time favorite place. Roatan Honduras is a close second. Anywhere where I can scuba dive and also enjoy hours on the beach is great in my book!
Ghost Town and Dan in Real Life. I'm a sucker for a Romantic Comedy.
I bleed BYU Blue but like any and all football teams except the Dallas Cowboys. I grew up a Washington Redskins, now a Washington Commanders fan, and I still root for them!
I love to run when I can find the time, and the weather cooperates. I also like to hike up the beautiful mountain trails here in Utah.
You can count on me to come prepared and to help in any way I can to help you to succeed in your goals. I love to help people feel better and do better, and I will always give 100% to you.
