the Type 2 diabetes coach
Hi, I’m Sarah
Diabetes is my area of expertise. I’m obsessed with it. I know nearly everything about it.
Why? Because of two reasons:
After working in healthcare for over a decade, I’ve become very good at managing diabetes with the tools we have in modern medicine. And I’m very aware that this approach only masks the disease without offering true healing. Often, the dietary advice given actually propels the disease forward.
You can see how ineffective this approach is when you appreciate that over half of adult Americans now have prediabetes or diabetes – and this is getting worse, not better.
IT’S NOT OK.
I’m also a person who has struggled with weight gain my entire life: as a child and in college, and again and again after each of my first 5 pregnancies. (Don’t freak out – I only have 6! )
I would gain 40-60 pounds with my pregnancies. The postpartum depression I had was deeply connected to the shame and powerlessness I felt around my body and out-of-control eating.
In my own journey to finding the solution to permanent weight loss, I discovered that the strategies that work are the same strategies that reverse Type 2 Diabetes.
This is where my personal story and my professional story collide.
It is my purpose and passion to offer you a real SOLUTION to your diabetes – NOT a band-aid in the form of medications. That is why I decided to get certified as a life coach and bring you this alternative.
Coaching people through transformation is what I was made for
AND, YES, I’M THE PHARMACIST THAT WANTS TO HELP YOU GET OFF YOUR MEDS!
I am a Doctor of Pharmacy. I have been board certified in both Pharmacotherapy and Ambulatory Care specialties. Basically, I’m an overachiever in the world of pharmacists. But that is how I roll. I am driven to get better so that I can serve my patients better. They deserve the best.
I’m not your typical pharmacist. I’ve been practicing since 2006. I worked in primary care for 8 years, meeting privately with people who were having problems with their medications.
Often, the most complex medication problems were referred to me. Uncontrolled diabetes and high blood pressure being the most common problems I dealt in. I made sure medications were appropriate, doing the job they were supposed to do, not causing problems like side effects or drug interactions, and that my patients could afford them and take them the way they were supposed to be taken.
I’m also a Certified Life and Weight Loss Coach. I obtained certification from the best coaching school in the world. Coaching uses the most effective, powerful tools to show you your own thinking so that you can understand why you are not getting the results in your life that you want.
