I’m Andrea and I’m a type 1 diabetic. I was diagnosed on September 17th, 2007 at 20 years old. I had 20 good years, I say.

I started using the OmniPod insulin pump on October 1st, 2012. My current endocrinologist is pretty cool and has an impossibly Greek name. I just call her Dr. K.

I love all things sweet, my longhaired wiener dogs Nico & Pippa (although Pippa belongs to my parents), attempting to remain fit, and taking lots and lots of naps.

I mean, I really like naps. As my mother says, “she’s a sleepy girl, but she does okay.”

I am a speech language pathologist. I also like boats.

My best friend Alexander Johnson took the photo posted. My mama, Linda, took the photo of Nicolaus Copernicus on deck. It is a forgiving photo of me. Nico always looks that good.

    1. So sorry for getting back to you so late! Nico’s post-surgery was a breeze. The extra 2 weeks of kennel rest was tough, but do able. He recovered fully, and hasn’t had any issues since! Hope Rex is doing great!
