I’m on a mission to help people living with diabetes experience life to the fullest.

If you feel like diabetes is taking up way too much space in your life, you’re in the right place. It doesn’t have to be this way. Diabetes doesn’t have to feel like a ball and chain is tied around your ankle, holding you back from everything you want to become. I am committed to guiding you with resources, tools, and practical advice that truly makes a difference in how you experience diabetes.

IMG_0044Hi, I’m Julie!

And I have a big vision for leading people with diabetes into living with freedom, despite the disease.

I believe 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!

I want to help you gain control of diabetes so that you can spend time on what matters most! I understand that having a back-up plan is important, even with our health. It’s okay to not get it right all the time.

So why should you listen to me? Well, I earned a doctorate of Pharmacy degree in 2000, and became a Certified Diabetes Educator in 2002 (now called Certified Diabetes Care and Education Specialist). I’ve spent the last 15 years educating family medicine physicians on the best practices in diabetes care, and talking to patients about achieving their diabetes-related health goals. I have a unique understanding of the medicines and science of diabetes, plus the experience of working with tons of patients. And just as important, I’m a busy mom of 3 boys! I know that our days don’t always go as planned. I’m familiar with  stress, crazy schedules, and interruptions.
