COACH

Lauren Bongiorno.

When Lauren was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at 7 years old, the cure was “just around the corner.” As she grew up, she and her family quickly realized that they couldn’t sit around and wait for that day to figure out how to live a full life despite diabetes.

Lauren’s pivotal moment in her own T1D journey was when she was a junior in college, and was celebrated by her doctor for achieving a 5.7 A1C, even though she didn’t feel healthy or happy in her own body.

In that moment, she realized that success with diabetes is commonly viewed only as a set of numbers, and that it doesn’t take into account personal relationships with food, body, mental health, and each person’s unique needs, lifestyles, and patterns.

From there, Lauren went on to find empowerment in her life by creating more awareness of her mindset and behaviors and how they connected to diabetes. Once she brought all of these pieces together, everything in life shifted.

Lauren ultimately became a National Board-Certified Health Coach to help other people with type 1 diabetes create transformative outcomes for themselves. She has been able to see what’s missing in the traditional diabetes management model. And fill that gap.

Lauren lives on Long Island, New York, where she runs the company, spends time with her family, and stays active by finding all kinds of activities to challenge her body and keep it moving. Someday, she hopes to visit Peru, to see where her grandfather grew up.

Since 2015, Lauren’s company has directly supported more than 5,000 people and families impacted by diabetes, and she’s just getting started.

COACH

Stacy Morse.

Stacy is a believer in the power of knowledge, community, and relationships.

She was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes at age 37; by this time, she had already started a family and established a career path. She found that juggling a new diagnosis, advancing in her career, and raising her children was intensely difficult.

In an effort to understand how to better manage her own T1D, she began studying nutrition and joined the Decide and Conquer Bootcamp. Risely Health strengthened her belief that connection with coaches and fellow diabetics makes facing health challenges less overwhelming and provides the necessary encouragement we need as T1Ds to thrive.

After receiving a master’s degree in Nutrition, Stacy used her new education and her personal experience to start a small catering business, aimed at providing healthy meal alternatives for busy professionals. Stacy is now a Certified Health Coach with a B.A. in Communication Studies from the University of Kansas and an M.S. in Health and Nutrition Education from Hawthorn University. Stacy is a National Board Certified Health and Wellness Coach.

Stacy lives in Loveland, Colorado, where she loves to walk with her pup and do strength training. She is also an HR professional and a Jayhawk! Someday she plans to hike a 14er. 

Stacy is committed to the idea that we are better together than we are on our own.

COACH

Jehan Arafa Tappe.

After being diagnosed at age 10, Jehan was blessed to grow up in a positive environment with supportive friends and family- even giving her nighttime injections at sleepovers! Growing up, Jehan and her family actively engaged in fundraising for a cure for diabetes and even met Miss America Nicole Johnson who has T1D.  But like many, she still struggled with the mental load of diabetes, always trying to hide her struggles and put on a happy face for  family and friends when inside, Jehan was suffering.  Jehan carried these feelings into adulthood, until finally opening up about the mental, physical, and emotional toll diabetes had on her, 24 years later. As a mom, she knew she had to prioritize her diabetes if she wanted to take care of her family – especially her husband and daughters who mean everything to her. 

Before coaching, Jehan worked in the corporate world in HR and training. After having her first daughter, Jehan decided to shift to be a stay-at-home-mom. After a while, she knew she wanted to help people with Type 1 diabetes as a career.  After going through Risely’s Group Coaching program, Jehan was inspired to pursue health coaching after her own personal transformation. She is currently working towards her NBHWC.

Jehan’s passions in coaching include, supporting people with diverse backgrounds and socioeconomic statuses, helping fellow moms prioritize their care, and being open and vulnerable with those that love you. 

She currently lives in Pittsburgh with her husband of over 10 years and their two daughters. Outside of coaching, Jehan enjoys learning new skills in the kitchen, live music, staying active, car sing-alongs and eating al fresco. She hopes to learn Arabic with her daughters someday!

COACH

Emily Petersen.

After graduating with a Bachelor's degree in Public Health, Emily continued her search for her passions. Less than a year after graduating, she became very ill and was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes at age 23. After getting acquainted with others in the diabetes community, she found that the procedures and education provided for adults diagnosed with T1D were far less detailed than for children diagnosed. 

In the face of underwhelming support from her healthcare team, she immersed herself in diabetes education materials and resources to learn how to manage her new condition without sacrificing the lifestyle she enjoyed. She formed a new care team with healthcare professionals who better supported her. However, even with guidance from the best in the field, she felt there was still a gap in the system where support was lacking.

Her newfound passion for diabetes led her to search for a career in diabetes care. Emily found Lauren and Risely’s social media pages and felt drawn to start her journey to become a health coach. The coaching industry fills the gap in the healthcare system that she discovered. She set out to become the additional support between doctor visits to help empower individuals to achieve their health and wellness goals. 

Emily added formal education to her independent learning after graduating from a diabetes specialty care company's NBHWC-approved training program. She is a National Board-Certified Health and Wellness Coach. Working as a coach further proved to her the value a coach adds to an individual's health journey when paired to complement other healthcare professionals.

Emily's passion lies in helping others achieve simple and sustainable goals to manage diabetes more easily and enjoy life fully. She continues to seek guidance from professionals like dietitians, coaches, and therapists to foster a healthy relationship with her body, food, and diabetes management. 

Emily lives in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex with her husband. Outside of coaching, Emily enjoys exercising, cooking, playing board games, and traveling. Emily and her husband are paragliding pilots and spend their free time and vacations exploring different parts of the world. She dreams of visiting the Alps to paraglide where the sport was born.

Megan Baumley.

Megan was diagnosed with T1D at age 18 during her sophomore year of college and in the midst of a transformative period in her personal life. Being in college, trying to balance school and a part time job, dealing with personal issues, and handling this new diagnosis was overwhelming and left her feeling burnt out. As time progressed, her relationship with herself and diabetes became really poor leading to an unsustainable lifestyle. 

Megan wanted to make an impact in the T1D community and spent years volunteering for the American Diabetes Association. Still, she didn't feel fulfilled and knew she could make more of an impact with this community. Megan fully understood the gaps in the healthcare system and was frustrated that there wasn't more information out there to support people living with T1D. Because of this, she became passionate about supporting people with T1D and finding better access to care and support in managing this diagnosis. 

Megan went through the Group Coaching Program with Risely Health. The community at Risely gave her space to acknowledge the struggles she was dealing with and empowered her to navigate through them with more confidence. This mindset shift made her decide to become a Certified Health Coach to help empower other T1Ds. In addition to Health Coaching, Megan is a speech-language pathologist. She lives in central New Jersey with her husband.

COACH

Lindsey Payne.

Lindsey was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes on her first trip abroad to Germany at age 12. Though a scary experience for her and her family, it taught her the importance of having a solid support group and fortitude. Being diagnosed as a middle-school-aged girl with no other T1D friends felt isolating and it took her many years to shed the shame associated with her diagnosis.

At 27, Lindsey took an active charge toward reclaiming her health and sought to make diabetes work for her. After years of gaps in support from her healthcare team, Lindsey joined Risely’s Decide and Conquer Boot Camp. It was here that she learned more about the variety of factors that impact her diabetes and where she began to build her diabetes community. With a renewed outlook on her diagnosis, Lindsey knew she wanted to support others that experienced a similar disconnect with their diabetes management and empower them to have agency over their health. She is currently working towards her NBHWC.

Alongside coaching, Lindsey works as a Public Health Educator for the active duty military population. She also has prior one-on-one health coaching experiences with Sailors in the fitness and nutrition spaces. She has dedicated her educational and professional careers to building healthy communities and advocating for holistic approaches to wellness. Lindsey is passionate about supporting others and believes that everyone is an expert in their own life. She leads with compassion and curiosity, and employs a person-first approach in her coaching.

Lindsey lives in Virginia Beach, Virginia with her 10-year-old rat terrier, Kay. She loves to travel, work out at her local gym, spend time outdoors, especially the beach during the warmer months, and leads a virtual book club. In her free time, you’ll find her reading a murder mystery or singing along to Taylor Swift.

Group coaching is completely different from anything else - it puts the power back in our hands. I loved the accountability with the community experience, the group calls, and how responsive the coaches were throughout. This program is truly life changing. I only wish I had found it sooner!

I never realized how much you could bond with strangers you met over the internet in a matter of months! Lauren and Jess are not only highly qualified, but they're T1Ds too and this makes a huge HUGE difference!

IQRA B

Before joining, most of my days felt like I was battling with my diabetes.Now, it doesn't feel like such a battle. These 3 months were filled with support, encouragement, and incredible coaching that gave me tools I will use for the rest of my life.

Risely stories.

“This program is a lifelong resource, and is one of the greatest investments that I could have made for my life, my health and my future as a mom. All of the coaches provided support, education, knowledge, help and love to every member of the DCB individually. Over the last 3 months, I lowered my A1C from 7.0 to 6.4, increased time in range by 10%, and I know that what I have learned will stick with me forever."

MOLLY B.
T1D 4 years

“Aside from lowering my A1c from a 7.4 to a 6.7, I have never felt so empowered and confident and in control of my body and how I am feeling. I am no longer exhausted from being on a rollercoaster and losing sleep from constant alarms and am able to think more clearly with no brain fog. My heart is grateful for this experience and my life will forever be changed. Simply thankful. ”

HOLLIE C.
T1D 26 years

"Everything changed for me through group coaching. It gave me space to work through anxiety I was having before and feel less frustrated and more confident and supported. My A1c is down from 7.0 to 6.3, and my time in range started 64%, and is now 87%! I can't believe who I am now versus the person I was three months ago."

FAQs

Questions we often get.

What is health coaching?

At the root, health coaching helps you get “unstuck” by helping you develop the tools and strategies to become aware of your blocks and patterns so that you can move forward towards the vision you have for yourself.

Risely’s coaching methodology is rooted in behavior change, published research, and our own internal client data collection. We focus on putting you in the driver’s seat and working alongside you to identify the gaps in your knowledge, give you the accountability and relatability you need, and help you with implementation and creating sustainable change.

Yes it’s about helping you improve your blood sugars, but it’s also about helping you discover who you can be when diabetes isn’t in the way.

Risely services are not a substitute for licensed healthcare providers and do not replace medical care.

What topics do you address in coaching?

We work with you on everything from understanding your individual body’s specific blood sugar patterns and knowing when and why to make certain changes, to menstrual cycle resistance and sensitivity, nutritional balance, your relationships with self/family/work/food, insulin resistance, energy maintenance and emotional regulation, weight and body image, sleep, nailing exercise blood sugar numbers, and mindset transformation.

Risely services are not a substitute for licensed healthcare providers and do not replace medical care.

Do you prescribe a specific plan or is my coaching personalized?

As coaches our role is to empower you with tools, mindset shifts, and behavior change to improve your diabetes management. We don’t prescribe a specific plan for you to follow. Instead, we help you determine sustainable habits that support your mind, body and lifestyle and help you navigate past roadblocks that have kept you from feeling truly confident in your life with diabetes.

Risely services are not a substitute for licensed healthcare providers and do not replace medical care.

All coaching calls are on Zoom and we use Slack for communication, coaching, and support in between calls. The exact schedule is sent out to clients who enroll and traditionally our calls take place on Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday. All calls are recorded, so you can replay a session if you were unable to attend or want to look back on a certain topic. We’ve had clients join the DCB in all different time zones from Australia, Europe, and all across the U.S.

What are your credentials?

All coaches on our team are Nationally Board Certified Health Coaches (NBHWC), trained and credited through a program that collaborates with the National Board of Medical Examiners (NBME).

Will this program help me lose weight?

Our program does not focus specifically on weight loss. However, many clients in our program report “losing weight with so much more ease” because of improved blood sugar control and overall focus on healthy habits.

Can you use HSA for the coaching program?

Yes, with a diagnosis of diabetes, you can use HSA dollars to pay for Cornerstone Classes and coaching programs.
