I’m a 46-year-old high school teacher who underwent a triple bypass on May 24th, 2018. I was also diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes after my surgery. Diabetes is generational and I hoped to fly under the radar, with no luck. I have been able to manage my levels with diet and exercise, with two tri-athletes as my mentors I accept their challenges willingly. I look forward to sharing my journey and how my family’s medical history was the catalysts that lead to my heart attack and my type 2 diagnosis.
