BIO:

Sarah MacLeod has lived with Type 1 diabetes since 2005. During her teens and early twenties she struggled with depression, diabetes burnout, and disordered eating. After finding the diabetes online community, Sarah became more involved in the world of T1D by organizing her own in-person peer support group opportunity for women with diabetes. Her connection to other women living with diabetes inspired Sarah to seek out more wellness & community-based opportunities. Since recovering from diabulimia in 2011, and learning to live with diabetes-related complications such as gastroparesis, neuropathy, and retinopathy, Sarah has become a certified holistic health coach, yoga teacher, and reiki practitioner. She is also an astrologer and tarot card enthusiast. Sarah enjoys empowering other people who live with diabetes, especially women, and helps others explore their own holistic health and highest self through her platform, Grace & Growth, which places an emphasis on spiritual wellness for women with type 1.
