Liz was diagnosed as a type 2 diabetic in 2014 at the age of 23. With a passion for all things insulin, Liz had just begun graduate school to pursue a PhD in cellular and molecular biology to study insulin signaling in insects. The struggle of balancing the stress of grad school and being a newly diagnosed diabetic, Liz learned the obstacles that many diabetics face first hand. From dealing with insurances to get medications to the mental health issues around stigmas, she knew that she needed to be her own advocate. Through her own health journey and diabetes management, Liz fell in love with connecting with other people, both diabetic and non-diabetic, to take back control of their own health and helping them becoming their own advocates too. Liz began coaching others on their health journey through a partnership with Beachbody and is working on building her own mentorship business.
