Who Am I?

Side profile.pngHi, I’m Ashley from Melbourne, Australia. In February 2009, I was diagnosed with diabetes. Since then, the classification of my diabetes has been a mystery my endo is yet to solve. For now, let’s just say I have type 1b diabetes, which is insulin deficiency with an unknown cause.

Apart from being pancreatically challenged, I’m also a PhD candidate and dietitian. My PhD looks at how mHealth technology can play a role in diabetes education in young adults during life transitions. I’m also the co-founder of Beta Change.

Welcome to my story.
