Diabetes Educator
Judy graduated from the University of Texas in Austin with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology and later went on to obtain a Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing from Texas Women's University. Immediately after nursing school, Judy decided she wanted to teach wellness with a focus on diabetes. After all, living well with diabetes implies an understanding of nutrition, exercise, and stress reduction as well as knowledge about the entire disease process. During this time, Judy mastered all areas of diabetes education and has taught patients to manage and live with diabetes in ways that are applicable to their lifestyle. While on the Board of the American Diabetes Association, she started a support group for type 1 and type 2 patients and was the Camp Director for New Horizons (a day camp for children with diabetes) for two years. Judy joined DiabetesAmerica after working for 12 years as a Certified Diabetes Educator. She states, "In my short time as an educator, things have changed so much and so quickly. It is very important for patients to not only be educated in self-managing their disease, but to be updated often regarding the newest standards, techniques, medicines, and options available to them. DiabetesAmerica provides these components to their patients in a cost- and time-efficient manner, and I am thrilled to be part of this empowering team!"
