I’ve spent many years inside exam rooms coaching patients on their diabetes care. I know the road to good health can be challenging and exhausting. I’ve found that managing diabetes takes work and determination, and is sometimes more of an art than a science. Yes, the numbers are important, but so is the path to success.

I am committed to using the most up-to-date knowledge of the disease with a real-life approach to helping you live your healthiest life! You don’t have to be perfect to succeed. Allow me to be a trusted companion on the journey.
