You have devoted your life to raising a family, building a stable career, but now you’re ready to focus on you.
But managing diabetes on your own is one obstacle you can’t overcome by
yourself and you feel stuck.
You have been diagnosed with diabetes and the only thing you’re certain about is blood sugar and weight are two numbers you need to drop.
You've been running around for answers, and you're worn out.
You want freedom to know that carbohydrates are not the enemy and even dessert now and then can be part of your eating plan.
Google isn’t giving you clear direction and you don't want another restricted diet to avoid the oral meds or insulin your doctors threatening you with.
If you don’t find a solution now, you’re afraid that health complications will prevent special memories you want to create with family and friends.
There is hope.
My name is Melissa, and following my health scare, it took me another 10 years to really wake up. My doctor, supportive friends and my husband who also lives with Type 1, told me straight up that I needed to get my diabetes under control.
I prayed I could just let go and give myself grace with my numbers and find out what being in control of my blood sugar would look like without causing other stress in my life.
I realized my blood sugars didn't have to be perfect 24/7. What I needed was to trust myself and know the warning I got was necessary but didn't have to keep me afraid.
I have been navigating Type 1 Diabetes for 40 years and understand your day-to-day struggles.
I am a wife and mom and I've survived diabetic retinopathy, menopause, empty nest, and life's curve balls, and run two thriving businesses, all while reaching my own health goals.
Now a certified health coach and personal trainer, I’ve spent the last 6 years helping busy women like you overcome obstacles with diabetes and avoid health complications.
Truth be told, I still want my numbers to behave and to avoid the side effects that often comes along with this disease.
I have now had healthy eyes for 30 years, Woo-hoo!
My successful laser eye surgery and consistent routine keeps me here without stressing over perfect blood sugar.
Beach walks and a smooth glass of wine at sunset with anything chocolate helps to balance me out…and YES, we can still enjoy desserts. I spend my downtime with husband David, our church family, daughter Sarah and our energetic dog Kona.
We love defying what diabetics are discouraged from. We travel and stay very active.
