Meet Dr. Lisa
I started Diabetes Diva Coaching and Consulting, LLC to help adults with the prevention and management of diabetes through education, support and personalized strategies to live healthier lives.
In 2005, my mother was diagnosed with diabetes. It was difficult for her to understand all the complex information given to her by her healthcare provider to:
Help her make food choices
Know how to make good decisions based on her blood-sugar level
Understand how her multiple medications worked to manage her blood sugars/diabetes
My mother struggled almost every day while living with diabetes. In 2008, she lost her battle with diabetes after experiencing complications from this disease.
In addition to helping all people living with Type 2 Diabetes break through the barriers, I offer specialized educational programs for African American, LatinX, and Native American communities, who are the most at-risk groups for diabetes.
