Lala Jackson, Managing Editor
Lala swore to never work in the diabetes space for fear of making the disease more than 100% of her life (having been diagnosed at age 10), then ended up doing it anyway. Making an impact in the lives of fellow people with diabetes mattered too much to stay away. Working in communications and content strategy for more than a decade across for- and non-profit companies, she’s been in the diabetes non-profit space for the past six years. A bit of a nomad, she grew up primarily bouncing between Hawaii and Washington state and graduated from the University of Miami in Florida with a communications degree focused in advertising. She is a published non-fiction author who is currently trying to teach herself how to write fiction. You can usually find her reading, preferably on a beach.
