My Journey

I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes, as one of the lucky few (less than 1%) who gets full on T1D after gestational age. It was a shock, but I had two kids under 5 years old at that time and didn’t really have time to go down. So, I took it as, “Game On”, I decided I will do what I need to do to live my very best life and stay healthy for my family. I adopted a raw vegan diet, competed in 100 mile bike races, and delved into yoga and meditation to the next level, and focused on positive mindset and gratitude.

Joanna was a rock for me when I first got diagnosed. She knew from experience how I was feeling-- the rollercoaster of emotions that comes from finding out you will live the rest of your life with diabetes.

I highly recommend Joanna as a life coach, especially for those experiencing major life changes. When my son was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes on his 15th birthday, Joanna was one of the first people I turned to for support and guidance.

Joanna’s coaching gave me a deeper and more customized understanding of type one diabetes than I ever receive from the medical community of dieticians, educators, or endocrinologists.
