Check out my latest video for tips on how to prepare.



Learning how to cope with a disease that now takes over the bulk of your life can be overwhelming.

As a certified personal life coach who has been dealing with a child with diabetes for over 14 years, I can help.

Contact me today and see who we can work together to regain control of your life.



Petitions for change: There are currently two online petitions aimed to raise awareness and create

change when dealing with insulin pump therapy in Canada. 

Both petitions are asking provincial governments to remove age restrictions on their insulin pump

therapy assistance programs.  To support them please see the following links:
