I am married and live in Vancouver, BC, Canada with my husband and 3 fabulous children aged 16, 12, and 9. I am an elementary school teacher.
In addition to my family and my career, I have 3 passions in my life: Diabetes, Exercise, and Cooking. My 12-year-old son, Dylan, was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes on November 21st, 2005, just 3 days before his 5th birthday. I have been advocating for diabetes ever since.
I am extremely active and love running, cycling, triathlon, and numerous other sports. I try to involve my family in my exercise pursuits as much as possible and encourage my children to live an active and healthy lifestyle.
Cooking is one of favorite pastimes. I am always trying out new recipes and will be sharing some of my family's favorites as they are made. Since food consumption is such a key aspect of good diabetes control, all cooking posts will include recipes and nutritional information.
