I have been a type 1 diabetic for over 32 years. I was diagnosed at the age of 9 and initially treated in my hometown of Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA. I arrived in the United Kingdom in 1997 to gain an MBA degree, and subsequently settled there permanently.
I currently work in the medical diagnostics industry where I market tests that are crucial for the diagnosis and management of various diseases, including diabetes. This background, along with my experiences of dealing with healthcare professionals to manage my diabetes, brought me significant insight into how clinicians make treatment decisions for their patients.
