New & Established Patients Call

Over 42 years of nursing and over 23 years in diabetes care has prepared me with the experience and knowledge to assist patients in managing all the areas of their life that diabetes effects, including the physical, emotional, socioeconomic, and spiritual. It is my ultimate desire to empower patients to self-manage their diabetes and meet the goals that will enable them to improve or maintain their quality of life. A quote I like is, "Diabetes can slow you down. It can make your life different. But it doesn’t have to stop you." - Scott Verplank.
