Stephanie has been living with Type 1 diabetes since 1997; she was diagnosed one week before her 5th birthday. Growing up, she spent her summers attending Camp Ho Mita Koda, the longest continuously running summer camp for children with diabetes. Stephanie earned her BA from Northwestern University, where she studied Sociology, Global Health, and Theater, and her MBA from Case Western Reserve University’s Weatherhead School of Management. Stephanie joined the Beyond Type 1 community as a member of Beyond Type Run, completing the TCS New York City Marathon (her first!) in November of 2017. Through marathon training and sharing her journey online, Stephanie found her passion for speaking about life with T1D and disproving the stereotypes that it can stop her from doing anything she sets her mind to achieve.
