Welcome to my website!
My name is Krystal, and I have been living with Type 1 diabetes for 20 years. Growing up with Type 1 diabetes in a region and on an island where its not well understood, was a challenge for me. Many MANY times, I felt depressed and alone and did not perform well in school, whilst managing a condition that felt like a full time job. After many years of struggling, I decided that it was time to make a positive change!
I changed my profession, from a Geologist/Environmental Scientist, and began to pour my heart and soul into a condition that demanded all of my time. After a few weeks, diabetes became something that I enjoyed and now it has grown into one of the loves of my life and my passion. I completed my Masters in Public Health and also became a Certified Health Coach.
“You can fail at what you don’t want, so you might as well take a chance at doing what you love.“
I have spent the last 10 years travelling, speaking, motivating, coaching, educating and empowering persons living with diabetes, chronic diseases…or just anyone who would listen. I love knowing that I can bring a smile to someone’s face. I love knowing that I can put this horrible thing that happened to me to use.
For years I referred to the day I was diagnosed as the worst day of my life.
Now…I truly believe it was the reason for my life!!
