Hi there,

One of my foundational principles is to help others maintain optimal health. Check out my most recent blog on Diathrive and learn tips on turning a diabetes diagnosis into teachable moments and help break the diabetes cycle. 

When you model and share health information with future generations, you can help them avoid or delay experiencing a diabetes or prediabetes diagnosis. Here are 5 ways to help break the cycle. 


When I started as a diabetes educator in 2001, approximately 17 million people had a diabetes diagnosis. At the time, there wasn’t much, if any, talk or statistics gathering about prediabetes.

Make this lifetime great because you still can!
