Mom of 3 children with type 1 diabetes, my daughter was diagnoised at 2 ½ years old and went on an insulin pump at age of 3, we couldn’t find anything that wasn’t medical looking to hold her insulin pump so my best friend Dawn and i created our own products, www.pumpwearinc.com. We started Pump Wear 10 years ago with 6 products today we have over 800 products, offering people with diabetes a large selection of ways to wear an insulin pump, along with diabetes awareness items etc.

We give back to our community with the “Wall of change” where people form the number of years they have had diabetes with their spare change and send us the picture and DRI the change.

We help organize and sponsor a “free” family weekend for families of children with diabetes, this is our 4 th year of doing this and we have 20 entire families attending Paul Newman’s double h ranch totally free.

My son’s were both diagnoised 2 years after my daughter with type 1 diabetes, at ages 14 and 11, so I have been living a life filled with diabetes. I worked for corporate American for 24 years and left the corporate world 3 years ago to work Pump Wear Full time.

I believe in having a positive attitude and letting our children do all the things they want to do, while learning to work around their blood sugars,
