Meet our Founder

In 2005, my world turned upside down when my doctor revealed that I had diabetes. At the tender age of 14, my life was packed with school, sports, and socializing, and I had no time for this diagnosis. I felt numb and overwhelmed, not to mention scared and confused about what it all meant. Looking back, I realized that I had no idea about diabetes and was totally unprepared for the journey ahead. But little did I know that this experience would transform me into a fierce fighter who refuses to let diabetes hold me back from living my best life.


As a young adult living with diabetes in the bustling city of Chicago, I thought I was alone in my struggles. That is, until I was invited to a group of vibrant and driven young professionals also managing this disease. It was there that I discovered a whole community of individuals like me, all grappling with the same challenges and eager to learn more. Despite appearing to have it all under control on the surface, I knew that I too was just winging it, like so many 20-somethings. I realized that I had yet to unlock the key to truly living my best and healthiest life with diabetes, and that there was still so much to learn beyond the standard checklists and guidelines.


Living with diabetes can be a challenging experience, and I know this all too well. From managing the highs and lows of this condition to keeping up with insulin shots and regular doctor's appointments, it felt like a full-time job just to stay healthy. Despite all this effort, I still struggled to find a sense of normalcy in my daily life. I was hesitant to seek out additional resources, like therapy and nutrition appointments, because I felt like I was already doing everything I could. But I soon realized that managing diabetes was about more than just physical care - it required addressing my mental and emotional well-being, too. It was a daunting task, but I knew that taking control of my health meant taking a holistic approach to my diabetes management.


Do you ever feel like you're just coasting through life, waiting for something to jolt you into action? Why is it that we often wait until we're faced with a crisis to take control of our lives? And why do we rely on external sources for guidance instead of tapping into our own inner wisdom? It's time to flip the script and start prioritizing our well-being before a scare sends us into a panic. Let's shift our approach from reactive to proactive and create a life of purpose and fulfillment. Are you ready to take charge?


As a diabetic, I know what it feels like to be in the dark and searching for answers. That's why I created Danica the Diabetic, on social platforms with the intention to empower individuals to take control of their health and have a glimpse of my life as a diabetic. But I quickly realized that support and accountability are just as essential as knowledge. That's why I formed the Dia-Log The Insulin For Your Soul as a community centric place where we can come together and lift each other up. Diabetes can be isolating, but it doesn't have to be. Join us and let's tackle this disease together!

As a visionary leader in the field of diabetes management, my core goal is to establish a robust and dynamic diabetic community that thrives on holistic living, fosters proactive behavior, and inspires every individual with diabetes, regardless of their type. My initiative, Dia-Log the Insulin for Your Soul, is an innovative approach to daily diabetes management aimed at empowering individuals to take charge of their health and well-being. Diabetes is more than just a medical condition; it is an integral aspect of one's identity.
