Patient Leader

I am 21-years old and was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes in December, 2018. In just 5 months after my diagnosis, I was able to complete my student teaching semester of undergrad, graduate summa cum laude, and land my first job as a 3rd grade teacher beginning in the fall. I may have diabetes, but diabetes does not have me!
