My name is Gretchen and I am from California. I am a very active person. I love being outdoors surfing and hiking! I am obsessed with running, spin classes, and yoga. On my free time, you can find me taking photographs or playing with my pet bunny, Winnie!
Last year I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes at 23 years old while I was traveling across Europe. Dealing with a foreign disease in a foreign country with a foreign doctor was not easy.. But I continued my travels, learned about the disease on my own, and most importantly- I didn’t let diabetes stop me from living my life! I am now super passionate about Type 1 and helping others with it! I started my own blog with diabetic friendly recipes, workouts, and inspirations to empower Type 1’s and even non-diabetics to live life to the happiest and fullest! We are all SO very strong living with diabetes and continue to win battles every single day!
