I’ve been living with diabetes for over three decades, and have helped numerous clients to a happier, healthier life with diabetes. I’ve come a long way since my own diagnosis, and have made it my mission to inspire and help others to thrive with and despite diabetes.
Using easily understandable information, immediately applicable action steps, and a bucket full of stories and experiences to share, I’m eager to present all of my light hearted, inspiring insights with the world.
Because of my invisible illness, I know what it’s like having to motivate yourself to keep going. I use all the knowledge I’ve gathered from my training as a nutrition coach, my own extensive studies, as well as my personal and professional background to create content that is informative, inspiring, yet based on the latest science.
Book me for a thought-provoking talk about diabetes for your workshop, event, conference or organisation.
Out with the dusty diabetes advice that everyone “has” to follow but rarely works. In with the new, healthful, incredible things that you can do to feel your absolute best in life.
Even though each presentation is carefully customized for the specific audience, I speak passionately about topics such as:
