Hello, friends. I would like to tell you a little about myself and how I found my way here. I am married to a wonderful man named Kevin. We live together in a suburb of Dallas, Texas with our dog, fat cat, and two fabulous kids.
For a living, I was a long-time private voice teacher. I don't know if you've ever met a private music teacher, but we are an interesting breed. I taught singing fundamentals, but I have also been an entertainer, counselor, personal trainer, and friend to my teenage clients. Somehow I ended up at all their birthday parties and they ended up in my wedding.
I first joined here during my personal struggle toward pre-conception - when I was trying to get my A1C down below that magic 6.0ish marker to participate in the baby race. My friends were all pregnant or have kids already and I was dealing with resentment and depression about it. Then I met the amazing people of TuDiabetes. I enjoyed very healthy pregnancies and we welcomed our little girl into the world in February of 2010. We followed that up with a little boy in February of 2012. I am so thankful for the love and support I receive here.
I blog at Sweetly Voiced and write about diabetes technologies as Tech Editor at A Sweet Life online magazine
