about

Stacy is a certified health coach at Risely Health.

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. She is currently working towards her NBHWC.

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.

WHAT t1Ds Are SAYING

Here’s how graduates feel on the other side.

Prior to working with Stacy, I was struggling to overcome my fear of hypoglycemia, and felt like I didn’t “own” my diabetes, which was reflected in my day-to-day life and relationships. Through this work, I gained confidence to try outdoor activities like hiking and camping without my fear of lows getting in the way! My self-awareness has increased dramatically, and I have a sense of peace within myself and my T1D management.

What I found most valuable from coaching was being able to talk about my frustrations with diabetes and having Stacy help me unpack those feelings. I was able to work on my relationship with food, learn how to communicate with my doctors much more effectively, and I feel a lot more confident about my relationship with T1D and myself.

After 50 years with T1D, I was often going low after meals and then rebounding high, and feeling frustrated with this cycle. After working with Stacy, my time in range has increased to 98% over the last 3 months and I have been able to dedicate space and time to my relationships and life again without T1D holding me back!
